Lucknow: Farmers and labourers can now be a part of the governance agenda, this is the first time the country has realized in the last 9 years. Farmers and laborers do not belong to any caste, creed and religion, but those who fulfill the needs of the society with their hard work and feed the country and the world.
Due to the hard work of the farmers of UP, today the state is being established as an economic superpower in the country. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath inaugurated the campaign during the program organized at Lok Bhavan, while starting the massive campaign for PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana organized at Lok Bhavan on Wednesday.

Attack on corruption with technology, benefits of schemes to the needy
In his address during the programme, the Chief Minister said that till now 2 crore 63 lakh farmers have joined the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana in the state. Till now an amount of 55 thousand 800 crores has been sent to the accounts of our farmers in Uttar Pradesh as PM Kisan Nidhi Samman. But despite this, we used to hear from some farmers that money is not reaching them. In view of this, the process of Aadhaar authentication is being started on a large scale, so that 100 percent eligible farmers can be benefited from this scheme. This big campaign is starting in all the 55 thousand gram panchayats of the state. If the use of technology can attack corruption, then the needy can also benefit from the facilities of governance. In this campaign, the people of Post Office, Agriculture and Revenue Department will join in the grand campaign to connect the eligible farmers with the scheme in every village. With publicity in every village, the work of taking it forward has been started.
Digitization of land records to end village disputes
The Chief Minister told that the face of the villages has changed. Land records have been digitized to a large extent. Due to this, the quarrels of the village are coming to an end. Earlier there used to be quarrels in petty disputes. Through the PM Swamitva Yojana, ownership rights have been provided to the farmers by providing them houses. So far 56 lakh houses have been made available in UP. By the end of this year, houses will be provided to 1.5 crore families. Their survey work has been completed. Today villages are moving forward with technology aiming for cleanliness with comprehensive improvement. The facility of BC Sakhi and Village Secretariat is being provided in the villages. The benefits of banking facility have started coming in the village itself. Whether the money of the villages is spent in the development of the village, money is needed for business, pension money is to be withdrawn or money is to be withdrawn from the account, for this one will not have to go out of the village. All this is being made available through BC Sakhi only. Technology is the need of today and work is going on to take it forward in the villages in a better way.
This great campaign to honor the farmers
This mega campaign is a great campaign to give respect to the farmers. All the organizations associated with this campaign will complete it on a large scale. This will solve the complaints coming from the farmers and I hope that after June 10, no farmer of UP will complain that I was deprived of the benefits of this scheme.
