CM has benevolently introduced this aid : R C Faldu
Agriculture minister R C Faldu has stated that the government has determined the structure of the aid based on the survey conducted related to the damage borne by farmers due to excessive rains. The reports of the survey and the ongoing situation of agriculture has been kept in mind as the government of Gujarat has sworn to support farmers at any circumstances.
