Uttar Pradesh is up for Grabs, 2022: BJP Makes a Strategic Move

Date:

Uttar Pradesh, one of India’s most populous and more enormous states, is again up for grabs in the coming election polls 2022.

BJP makes a move towards the same as the sitting chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, announced specific measures in favour of the farmers on Wednesday.

With 224.57 lakhs agricultural land in Uttar Pradesh, out of which marginal farmers own 78% land,   small farmers occupy 13.8% and 8.22% of farmers who hold the land above 2 hectares, the measures taken by the UP government gives us insight into a chain of events yet to happen following this.

Abrupt strategic actions taken by a ruling government before elections tend to serve a simple purpose- aiming for the proportion of voters belonging to a particular sector who are enough to tip the decisions in their favour.

A Sneak Peek?

CM Yogi Adityanath today cleared the pending dues of cane farmers worth Rs.1.42Lakh crore hanging by a thread since 2010.

The practice of stubble farming involves setting farming intentionally to the straw stubble that remains after harvesting grains, including rice, wheat etc.

For the last few years, the Supreme Court has urged the Centre and State to stamp out stubble burning, particularly in Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Western Uttar Pradesh, leading to aggravating levels of air pollution in New Delhi every year in October- November.

Pro-farmer announcements made by the chief minister include withdrawal of stubble burning cases lodged against farmers and a One-time Settlement (OTS) scheme to waive off interest on electrical dues.

The CM further assured the farmers of zero impact on electricity connection regarding pending power dues. He also spoke about his upcoming decision with relevant stakeholders to increase the price of the cane.

The state hit a record high as it purchased 56lakh MT wheat from the farmers on Minimum Support Price, MSP, despite the adverse condition arising due to the pandemic.

Western Uttar Pradesh and other states farmers seem to be on the warpath with the saffron led government over three Agri legislations aiming to deregulation the sector in purview.

We must take note of the increasing rise in production costs, growing debts compelling thousands of farmers to take their life or let their families witness a hungry sleepless night.

The current system screams a systematic solution to prevent tragic deaths of farmers hit us day and night.

Such measures undertaken by the government aim to provide a minimal cooling effect to prolonged farmer’s agitation plaguing the country. Coming Elections will inform us if the steps to gain a farmer’s trust has a beneficial impact.
