Protect interests of farmers, small industries: RSS chief

rss-chief“To control corruption, the Central government has taken various policy decisions, yet there is requirement of an integrated policy. Policy should address needs of industry, trade, agriculture and environment which will safeguard interests of all. The biggest contribution to our economy is made by the small, medium industries and self-employed business. Our economic policies should ensure that the needs of big businesses, small medium and micro are to be protected. The small, medium and micro business have to be strengthened because they give employment to many people.

There should be a minimum support price for farmers so that they are able to look after their families. Agriculture is a big source of employment but small farmers suffering because of reduction in prices, vagaries of market and nature. The government is sensitive to the needs of farmers and farm loan waiver is one big example. We have to bring new technology in agriculture sector.”

— RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in his annual Vijaya Dashmi speech in Nagpur, India on September 30, 2017
