Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said his government will ensure that farmers in the city who suffered losses because of crop damage this year get compensations at the rate of Rs 50,000 per hectare. He said this initiative was being actively pursued by the Aam Aadmi Party since it came to power in the national capital in 2015.
"Recently, I met groups of farmers who told me that they have suffered losses because of crop damage caused by unseasonal rainfall this year. I want to tell farmers in Delhi that they need not be distressed. The Aam Aadmi Party government will continue to help farmers,” Kejriwal said in a video press briefing on Wednesday.
