Ghanshyam Tiwari case rests on central leadership

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Announcing to pitch candidates at all 200 seats of state in upcoming assembly elections, BJP MLA from Sanganer constituency Ghanshyam Tiwari left a window open for reconciliation by postponing the declaration of the name of the ‘new party’. Tiwari has yet not resigned from BJP and the party leadership at state too is horns of a dilemma on the issue. The party-state leadership has shrugged off a decision on it for the central leadership. “Its democratic right of an individual to decide on contesting the election,” BJP state president Ashok Parnami said in response to media queries on Tiwari issue on Wednesday. “In process of my duty as a party state president, I have to inform the central leadership on all such issues and not just in case of Tiwari, So has been done in case of his recent comments,” said Parnami. “Tiwari has responded to the committee and it’s now it’s on them to take an action,” Parnami said. A senior leader, Tiwari has been associated with BJP since its inception in Rajasthan. Even as he has been sidelined at party politics, the state leaders do not intend to gain him on sympathy points and thus is not in the mood to decide on him in haste. However, as Tiwari has declared to announce the name of his party by ‘Makar Sankranti’ falling in January a decision will have to be reached before the date. New frontAnnouncing to pitch candidates at all 200 seats Tiwari left a window open for reconciliation by postponing the declaration of the name of the ‘new party’.

Will he won’t he? Tiwari down to the T

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>With just a year to go for the assembly elections, Delhi has started getting ‘political tourists’ from Jaipur. Among them most are those who don’t gel with state leadership and are doubtful of their candidature. They look to go for that ‘last ditch effort’ before turning rebel. For BJP, containing Ghanshyam Tiwari will be a challenge as the senior legislative from Sanganer constituency has been openly defying the state leadership. Even as political pundits rule out possibility of a thriving third front in current political scenario, dissent of Tiwari has attracted leaders of either parties – Congress and BJP – who are relegated to the fringe. Few others including some independents and leaders from NPP and BSP are also keeping a tight vigil on political development. “We had extended full support to him (Tiwari) and are still eager to support him on issues of public concern. He has to decide the future of his movement,” Lalsot MLA and leader of National People Party, Kirodi Lal Meena told DNA. Neglected within BJP, Tiwari had launched a social front Deen Dayal Vahini last year. It has been since then that he has been toying with the idea of floating a new party. However, as election time closes, pressure is also mounting on him to disclose his cards. “Wait for a day,” Tiwari delayed answer till public meeting on questions of a new party. His public meet at Ramleela grounds is all set to counter the BJP government’s development claims with findings of his “loksangrah abhiyan” held by the Vahini across state over the last year.It has been on several occasions that Tiwari has publicly spoken against the BJP government. The differences have even reached central leadership but there has been no action.

New industrial area in pipeline after 15 years: Ashok Jain

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Applauding the efforts of industrialists, Ashok Jain said that despite few facilities, industries are doing well and has helped Jodhpur establish itself in the world. He was speaking during his visit to Jodhpur for the first time after becoming the chief secretary of the state on Sunday.Jain was apprised of the problems faced by industrialists especially in various industries, including handicraft, steel and lime. He said that new industrial area will be developed after 15 years in Jodhpur, but the prices of land in such areas are so high that they are difficult to buy in the prevailing situation.The industrialists expressed their objection on forcibly organising the Western Rajasthan Industry Fair by RAJSICO, because since years it has been jointly held by the district administration and Industries Association.On this, Jain gave assurance of giving opportunity to the industries association after finding out what exactly the matter is. Mayor Ghanshyam Ojha, chairman of Industries Association Prakash Jirawala, vice president Om Prakash Lohia, senior industrialist Shri Gopal Sabu, Ghewarchand Kanungo, Kishanlal Garg, Aashram Dhoot and others apprised Jain of the problems faced by industries.Jain will discuss the development of the city during a meeting with officials on Monday and will also review the progress of government schemes of each department.Jain became emotional during his first visit to his home town Jodhpur after becoming the chief secretary of the state and said that fond memories of childhood, studying in engineering college and spending formative years in the city are still fresh in his mind. Moreover, all the officials including divisional commissioner Ratanlal Lahoti, commissioner Ashok Kumar Rathod gave him a warm welcome. He was also given the guard of honor there.

Rajneeti Of Political Padyatras

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>As the saying goes, life is but a journey and as fact goes, a politician needs to undertake a long journey to establish self. But in Rajasthan; leaders of all stature, parties and disposition are on various yatras to not only consolidate their position but also re establish their connect with the public.These yatras are said to be taken out for various issues; farmers welfare, justice for all, water conservation, grievance settlement, establishing connect and feedback. But in the year penultimate to state elections, the actual purpose of these yatras is to test waters, gauge public mood and design strategy for the assembly elections next year.A look around the state and one can see yatras in all different directions for all different purposes. The yatras are curated to create frenzy, attract crowds galvanize supporters, in short get into election mode ahead of competition. The latest yatra that started on Wednesday is by Ashok Gehlot as companion to Rahul Gandhi, in neighbour state Gujarat. But Gehlot stands to reap results on home ground in near future. Congress chief Sachin Pilot recently concluded his yatra across Raje bastion, Hadauti in support of farmers. The well timed yatra by the party chief served to establish Congress’ concern for farmers in the area where most suicides have taken place.Higher education minister Kiran Maheshwari had undertaken a yatra on foot from the Dwarkadheesh temple to Charbhuja temple with a message to conserve water as part of obeisance after the Rajsamand lake filled to the brim after over four decades. A well timed affair to coincide with the public mood and opportunity to interact with the huge crowds that naturally gather when the lake fills up. Chief minister Vasundhara Raje’s entire tenure has been an endless series of yatras by various names, sometimes for justice at doorstep and on other times for rejuvenation of water resources and now more recently preparing for by elections.Even as all these yatras are taking place all across the political arena, the yatras that have been assigned to netas are simply not taking place.YATRA GALOREWhile senior BJP leader Ghanshyam Tiwari is yet to decide whether he would form a party, he is continuously travelling across the state to establish units of his Deendayal Vahini.
Newly appointed BJP organisation general secretary Chandrashekshar is undertaking exhaustive yatras to acquaint himself with the state and party functionaries, in company of the party chief Ashok Parnami.
Notably, ministers are yet to go on yatras to the districts of which they are incharge. But as they stand to gain nothing politically, the yatras are yet to take off. Quite understandable too, exhaustive tripsto locations that promise no electoral gains are not on agenda of politicians.

Vasundhara Raje loses true friend, ally

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Senior BJP strongman Digamber Singh passed away on Friday morning after a prolonged illness. He was 66. The news of his death came as a rude shock for the party and CM Vasundhara Raje. Among the trustworthy allies of Raje, Singh was health minister during her previous tenure and was presently entrusted with the responsibility of 20-point programme vice-chairman, equivallent to the rank of a cabinet minister.Singh, who was admitted to a private hospital in Jaipur on October 18, was suffering from swine flu. However, he had recovered from the flu bout but a prolonged case of cancer and history of hypertension resulted in several medical complications and eventually the end came due to multiple organ failure.He was cremated later in the evening in his native district of Bharatpur amid a huge gathering of supporters and senior BJP leaders. Political leaders across party and state borders condoled his death. Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent a wreath. CM Raje visisted the beraved family at the hospital and later at their paternal home inBharatpur.A prominent Jat face for the party, trustworthy of CM Raje, Digamber Singh graduated as doctor from government medical college of Jodhpur and was known as ‘doctor saab’ among his supporters. It was more because that despite being a politician, he never distanced himself from medical practice. “He was always a doctor at heart,” remembers a former school time friend, Dr LC Sharma.Born on October 1, 1951 at a village in Bharatpur distrct, Digamber Singh was a brilliant student, also fond of music and singing. A person who never missed a chance to sing on stage during his college days. He never displayed political aspirants during his college days and was practicing as a doctor till his forties when a sequence of events inspired him to take up politics as a cause.In politics too, he displayed brilliance and within a decade of stepping into the arena, he got elected from Deeg-Kumher assembly constituency and was appointed as the health minister. His tenure as a health minister is known for relatively less friction between health department and doctors. He will also be remembered for getting passed the bill to ensure safety of medical practitioners at hospitals. He consecutively won the seat in next election despite the anti-incumbency wave in state. He still continued to practice and was seen treating senior party leader Ghanshyam Tiwari while he developed complication during an assembly session. He even went to treat patients outside SMS hospital while the resident doctors were on strike during the tenure of Ashok Gehlot. His friend Dr. Sharma was superintendent of SMS hospital at that time. Dr Singh was, however, humble enough to leave the protest on plea of a former friend. However, he lost the election in 2013 and treatment of cancer kept him away from the state politics until Raje appointed him vice chairman of TPP in 2015.

Despite ‘reservation’, Rajasthan’s bill on reservation passed

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Rajasthan Backward Class (Reservation of seats in Educational Institutions and of Appointment of Seats and Posts in services under the State) Bill, 2017 was passed in the Assembly on Thursday. The bill brings under implementation the recommendations of State Backward Classes Commission submitted in July this year and proposes to increase the quota of other backward classes from 21 per cent to 26 per cent and provide 5 per cent of it be kept exclusive for “More Backward Classes”. Among these more backward classes are Gurjars, Banjara, Gadiya Lohar, Rabaris and Gadariya, previously included among the special backward class category. Implementation of the bill has once again raised the total reservation quota in the state to 54 per cent.“Not less than four commissions and committees, each headed by a person who has been a judge of high court, have concurrently concluded that these are extremely backward classes and need immediate and special attention,” said Arun Chaturvedi, minister of Social Justice and Empowerment, defending the bill as it raises the cumulative reservation quota in state above the ceiling of 50 per cent.The explanation, however, has not been convincing for many of the Assembly members, even those of the ruling side. Ruling BJP MLAs Prahlad Gunjal and Ghanshyam Tiwari raised questions. Tiwari said that the government has brought this bill against law and Supreme Court orders. Because of this, reservations for OBCs and other castes may also get stuck in the High Court. After the bill is passed, the government will give reservation to Gurjars, Gadiya Lohar, Banjara, Rebari and Gadaria castes through notification. Is there a need to bring the bill to issue the notification? Reservation of SC, ST and OBC has been given through notification. What is the need to bring this bill to give reservation to the Gurjars? Prahlad Gunjal also pointed out the issue of notification and targeted the state government. Gunjal said that there is no provision for reservation in the bill. Government will issue notification later. After the notification, this reservation will also be stuck in the High Court. The government has stopped the way for amendment in the ninth Schedule of the Constitution by bringing this bill. Tiwari, Gunjal and Ghanshyam Mehar demanded amendment in the Ninth Schedule of the Constitution to give reservation to the Gurjars. After debate on the bill, Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Arun Chaturvedi rejected all the legislators questioning the new reservation bill. Chaturvedi said this bill has been brought on the basis of the principles of social justice. The State Backward Classes Commission has estimated the population of backward classes in Rajasthan around 52 percent, so considering the quantity of population, the percentage of reservations for the backward classes needs to be increased.According to the report of the High Level Committee headed by Justice Garg and the State Backward Class Commission appointed by the state government, the total reservation in special circumstances can be increased by more than 50 percent. These five castes can be given 1 percent within the limit of 50 percent in the case of Indra Sahani and 4 percent reservation beyond that limit. Thus, the total reservation of these castes should be 5 percent and reservation of the overall backward class should be 26 percent. After the three-hour debate, the bill was passed by voice vote.BACK ON GAGThe state government was caught on backfoot on the issue of amending criminal laws to provide immunity to public servants from illegitimate cases. Opposition went on offensive against the amendments holding them as ‘shielding the corrupt’ officials.CASTE CAULDRONThe state government has for the third time attempted to extend segregated reservation at government jobs and educational institutes to Gurjars and other four other castes. The bill that was passed on concluding day of the ninth session proposes to provide these reservation under the other backward class category.AGGRO OVER AGRI LOANThe demand for waiving farmer loan echoed at the House during the session. Opposition MLAs demanding complete waiver of loans for farmers went on a sit-in at the Well on Wednesday afternoon. The sit-in continued all through the night and even after the session got adjourned sine die on Thursday. The issue was discussed at length at the Question Hour on the concluding day.

New political power will soon emerge in Raj: Ghanshyam Tiwari

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>BJP MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari today signalled that a new political power will soon emerge in Rajasthan and said the state government will provide quota to deprived classes of the society, only if they unite and fight for it. He claimed the deprived classes are not getting benefits as they do not gather members of the society to build pressure on the government. “The state government is ready to introduce a Bill in the Assembly to provide reservation to Gujjars and four other castes. But it doesn’t want to release a notification of the Bill already passed in the Assembly meant to provide reservation to the economically backward of upper castes,” the outspoken BJP leader said. “The day Brahmins, Rajputs, Vaishys and Kayasthas join hands, the government will issue a reservation notification,” Tiwari said in a statement here. A new revolution has started in the state, which will take its shape by November 10, he told mediapersons in Ajitgarh of Sikar. “We are not against reservation for people of other castes, but fighting for reservation to the people of deprived classes that are economically backward,” Tiwari said. Citing the example of gangster Anandpal Singh’s encounter, he claimed that initially the government was not ready to get it probed by the CBI, but was compelled to do so when the Rajput community built pressure. Tiwari has been criticising Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and the BJP leadership after show cause notices were served to him by the party’s national discipline committee in May. The notices were sent after the BJP MLA alleged that the BJP’s Rajasthan unit had become a place for the “mafia and sycophants” and claimed that the dedicated, loyal and qualified people were being “sidelined”.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Amit Shah of strategy in Jaipur

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>National BJP president Amit Shah is set to arrive on a three-day visit to Jaipur beginning today. The visit, which has been on the cards for a long time now, is a part of the larger scheme of things aimed at securing a majority mandate in the 2019 general elections.Shah has been on a whirlwind tour of the states where he is taking a direct feedback from the workers and the think-tank on party’s prospects and performance (where it is in power). He is also strengthening the party functionaries and the booth-level units in run-up to the general elections. Shah has visited states like Odisha, Kerala, Haryana among other states where he has already carried out a similar exercise. According to sources, Shah shall be largely concentrating on getting the warring factions in Rajasthan on the table to draw up plans for a unified front when the time for elections is ripe. The dissent is from a handful of party persons like Ghanshyam Tiwari. They have got the party’s ears… Shah is here to resolve their disputes, a party functionary said.Sources also said there are indeed talks of replacement of party president Ashok Parnami in state. As per the norms, Parnami cannot become a minister or hold any other post given the charge he heads, the source said. But the party high command’s visit to the state is not a referendum on the performance of Ashok Parnami, sources said. Sources admitted there are rifts in the party, which need to be ironed out. Shah is not wasting his time on a 5-lakh km round trip. He is going to take a decisive stand on party’s winnability.

Raj govt must clear ‘serious doubts’ on Anandpal encounter:

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rebel BJP MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari today said the Rajasthan government should take immediate steps to clear “serious doubts” that have arisen after the encounter of dreaded criminal Anandpal Singh. He claimed that people in large numbers have met him after Anandpal’s killing and there are “serious doubts in their minds about the authenticity of the encounter”. “Why is the government running away from a CBI inquiry in the case, despite the statement of the state home minister, Gulabchand Kataria, that he is ready for any probe,” said the MLA, who has opened a front against Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje after he was served a notice for anti-party activities in May. Following the encounter killing on Saturday night in Churu district’s Malasar village, Anandpal’s family refused to take his body and demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter yesterday. “The family members of Anandpal have demanded a postmortem from the medical board but the government is running away. “His family has also demanded a CBI probe and the state home minister has said that he is ready for any inquiry then why is the government is not taking a decision,” Tiwari asked. He also claimed that Kataria was himself not aware of the encounter and this posed a question. “The home minister stated that the chief minister had called and congratulated him after the encounter on Saturday night. It means though Raje was directly aligned with this operation, Kataria was fully unaware of the action,” he said. In a joint press conference, yesterday, leaders of various organisations, including the Rajput Sabha Bhawan, the Pratap Foundation and the Karni Sena demanded a CBI inquiry into the encounter.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

BJP MLA warns of ‘satyagraha’ if Raje doesn’t vacate bungalow

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rebel BJP MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari has threatened to hold a ‘satyagraha’ if Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje does not vacate her current bungalow. Tiwari in an open letter to Raje has said that there is still time to vacate public property and move to 8, Civil Lines — government allotted bungalow, failing which he would hold a ‘satyagraha’. He said that people of the state are disappointed with her (Vasundhara’s) goal to misuse public property for availing life-time luxuries. “I am amazed with Raje’s silence on the issue who without caring about people’s sentiment is focusing on her desires,” Tiwari said. Accusing Raje of believing in ‘use and throw’ policy, Tiwari said that she had kept her ministers on front to save herself from legalities. “Since I have raised the issue of misuse of the state’s public property, I am being pressurised and attacked by your sympathisers. You have kept yourself safe as they will face legal action. They will be used and you will find someone else,” he said. Earlier, Tiwari on June 8 at a press conference had given a 10-day ultimatum to Vasundhara Raje to either declare her current bungalow as the chief minister’s house or move into the government allotted residence. He had said that if Raje fails to take decision, he will hold the protest along with members of the Deen Dayal Vahini, a group founded by him. Tiwari had alleged that to take life-long possession of the bungalow, the Raje government had passed the Rajasthan Ministers Salaries (Amendment) Bill, 2017 in the last Budget Session of the assembly. Tiwari alleged that the Bill was an attempt to implement “feudalism” in Rajasthan, which he has opposed several times in the Assembly. Tiwari has been criticising Raje and the BJP leadership after he was served show cause notices last month by the party’s national discipline committee. The notices were sent after he alleged that the BJP in Rajasthan had become “a place for mafias and sycophants while dedicated, loyal and qualified people had been sidelined”.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The district administration today gave Rs 5 lakh compensation to the family of the man killed in the infamous Jewar robbery and murder case. “Additional district magistrate (finance) Ghanshyam Singh along with myself and Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh went to the victim’s house and handed over the relief cheque of Rs 5 lakh to them,” Sub Divisional Magistrate Shubhi Kakan said.

On June 1, I had taken the victim’s family members to Lucknow where they met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. “The chief minister had directed the police to crack the case and arrest the culprit. He also announced financial help for the deceased’s family,” the Jewar MLA said. Armed robbers had on May 25 struck a group of eight persons travelling to Bulandshahr in a vehicle on the Yamuna Expressway, shooting dead a man and looting cash and jewellery. Four women, who were travelling in the car along with as many men, alleged that they were raped at gunpoint after they tried to resist the robbery bid.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Rebel BJP leader writes to MLAs, apparently targeting CM

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rebel BJP leader Ghanshyam Tiwari today sent an open letter to all party MLAs of Rajasthan asking them not to entertain “any specific individual”, an apparent reference to Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Tiwari, an MLA, termed the recent suspension of legislators Hanuman Beniwal and Manoj Nyangli from the assembly as “an attempt to end democratic and parliamentary traditions”. Beniwal and Nyangli were suspended during last month’s assembly session on the ground of indiscipline. Tiwari urged all the MLAs to “stand up to save the values and traditions of the democracy and be united for getting the suspension of the MLAs revoked.” Tiwari has been targeting Raje ever since she became the chief minister. Tiwari, despite being a senior party leader, was not given a ministerial berth. Earlier this month, he was served a show cause notice by the party for “anti-party activities”. In his two strongly-worded replies, Tiwari had attacked Raje, calling her “queen of indiscipline”, and questioned the central leadership for not taking action against her.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Those initiating signature campaign against me are helpless:

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>BJP MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari, who was served a show-cause notice earlier this month for anti-party activities, today said the ministers who have initiated a signature campaign to “corner” him are helpless as they want to safeguard their ministerial berths. After Rajasthan cabinet ministers, including Rajendra Rathore, and MP Nihalchand Meghwal released a signed statement against Tiwari, he said, “I have full sympathy with them. The ministers were being pressurised continuously by the Chief Minister to release the statement.” “If the ministers are able to save their berths because of me then I am happy for them,” the MLA said. In his reply to the show-cause notice, Tiwari had claimed that he did not attend party meetings and events due to threat to his life and that he will not bow down to the “corrupt and inferior leadership”. Meanwhile, Vimal Agarwal, the Jaipur district chief of Deen Dayal Vahini of which Tiwari is the president, questioned the intent of ministers initiating the joint signature campaign saying that they have violated disciplinary norms of the party. Ministers like Rajendra Rathore, who were once suspended from the party on disciplinary grounds, are now questioning Tiwari’s integrity, he said. The state executive member of Deen Dayal Vahini, Ramkishor Rawat, said those cornering Tiwari should have introspected before questioning his integrity and dedication for the BJP. Tiwari’s political life is crystal clear, he said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Rajasthan BJP MLA Tiwari defiant after party notice

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Days after being served a notice for alleged indiscipline, senior Rajasthan BJP MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari said that he will not bow down to the “corrupt and inferior leadership”. He was served a notice by BJP’s national discipline committee chairman Ganeshi Lal on May 6. “Rajasthan has never bowed down and it will never happen. Instead, it will create a new history. It began with chief minister’s (Vasundhara Raje) henchmen misbehaving and conspiring to attack me on October 2, 2015 during BJP training camp and then indiscipline notice served to me,” said Tiwari in reply to the notice. Tiwari said that the notice is being given to every loyal worker of the state, which is being crushed by the state’s leadership which had a “corrupt and feudal mindset”. “Organisations working closely with RSS have protested against the state government, but all complaints have been left unaddressed,” he said. In a point-by-point reply to the indiscipline notice, Tiwari claimed that he does not attend party meetings and events due to threat to his life. “I have been attacked five times in Rajasthan. Before the attacks, current BJP government withdrew security provided to me and my family. I have apprised the Speaker, Governor and Union Home Minister about it,” he said. He alleged that “the party has been pawned to the chief minister who mounted pressure to get me removed from responsibilities in Centre and state”. He accused the Rajasthan BJP of having become a place for mafias and sycophants by sidelining the dedicated, loyal and qualified people.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Rs 4,430 cr spent under MGNREGA in current FY: Raj govt

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Rajasthan has spent Rs 4,430 crore under the MGRENGA in the running financial year, Panchayati Raj Minister of Rajasthan Rajendra Rathore said today. Replying to a question during the Question Hour, the minister said the state ranks fourth in the country in payment to labourers. He said there were only five Gram Panchayats in the state where no work under the MGNREGA was taken up in the current fiscal year. He said 2.96 lakh families in the state were given jobs for 100 days under the scheme and added that 97 per cent labourers were getting wages in their bank accounts. In his reply to a question by BJP MLA Ghanshyam Tiwari, Rathore said slow server speed, lack of employees, incorrect details of several labourers’ accounts were among the reasons for delay in payments of wages under the MGNREGA. The minister also said there was no provision for linking the scheme with farm labour. In reply to another question, Agriculture Minister Prabhu Lal Saini said the farmers running green and poly-houses will get additional grant of up to Rs 12 lakh. He said from the next financial year, the subsidy amount will be transferred to farmers’ bank account directly. Currently, the subsidy is given to empanelled firms which set up greenhouses for farmers.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
