Kishore Tiwari, chairman of the Vasantrao Naik Swavlamban Mission (VNSM), said Saturday that the BJP may take a leaf out of Telangana government's agricultural polices.
VNSM is a task force appointed by the BJP-led government in Maharashtra to address agrarian distress.
Tiwari said in a release here that while rural voters in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh threw out the incumbent BJP in recent elections, it was pro-farmer policies of the Telangana government which ensured the victory of chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in the southern state.
Saying that the BJP should appoint a "knowledgeable" agriculture minister in the Centre, he said that on the lines of Jharkhand and Telangana, a cash subsidy of Rs 5,000 per acre be given to every farmer.
