"We will give Rs 5000 to farmers having less than one acre land for Kharif crops every year. This scheme will be named as Mukhya Mantri Krishi Ashirwad Yojana and will be introduced from 2019-20 Budget," he said.

 

"The scheme would be highly beneficial as it will double the income of the farmers as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he added.
