He said that it is nearly two and half years of the Union government and none of its Ministers or M.Ps have been either involved in any type of corruption and the model of good governance can be visualized by the people themselves every government scheme is now widely publicized so that the people who reside in the remote areas could avail the benefits of these C.S.S. While speaking on the occasion M.L.A from R.S Pura Constituency Dr.Gagan Bhagat said that since several years there were several insurance schemes launched by the union government, but they were only on records and the farmer community has been suffering from that time and till date, he also hailed the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojna (PMFBY) for its low premium rate and hassle free features which would definitely prove beneficial for the farmer community, while taking on the state government he raised the issue of Kissan Credit Cards (K.C.C)and said that the farmers are being ignored and he will not tolerate this as he has won from R.S Pura due to the vote casted to Bhartiya Janta Party by these poor farmers and the government ,concerned ministry along with the officials of the Agricultural department should take it seriously , he appealed to the M.P Jugal Kishore to intervene in this matter and discuss the issue of K.C.C with the C.M and Minister Incharge soon as possible as many of those farmers have been living in very fragile economic conditions and they have lot of hope from the BJP govt. He further maintained that the haphazard constructions in R.S Pura along the road side and in the Basmati growing area is a cause of great concern, he immediately demanded a Blanket ban on these constructions in the form of Banquet Halls and Showrooms of influential persons due to which the world famous basmati growing area is in danger due to the mushroom growth of these concrete forests, he even demanded an order from the revenue department and agricultural department in this regard then only the erosion of agricultural land by the mafia will be tackled.
