The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan has launched ‘Kisan Portal’ for the farmers under Pakistan Citizen’s Portal.
Addressing the launching ceremony in Islamabad on Friday, the Premier has emphasized on research and adoption of modern techniques to enhance agricultural productions.
On the occasion, PM Imran Khan has said that the incumbent government would help the farmers in adopting new techniques to increase the crop yields. He said steps have been taken to ensure that farmers receive due price of their crops.
The Prime Minister further stated that government’s initiative of Kisan Card would provide direct subsidy to small farmers. He said the Health Card would also benefit the farmers in treatment of their ailing family members.
“Prosperity of the country is linked to prosperity of farmers’ community. He said the dams being constructed would greatly contribute to agricultural development in the country,” he said, adding that the Kisan Portal would give voice to the small farmers and they could now file complaints to the concerned quarters if face any injustice.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Kisan Portal will play an important role to extend assistance to the farmers and address their problems. While earlier, the problems of the farmers were not reaching the quarters concerned for redressal as there was no dedicated category for them in the Citizen’s Portal.
