Today the Ministry of Agriculture is using caricatures to promote all the good work done by it in last couple of years. Let us have a look at what the ministry has done to improve the lives of farmers who feel India's 125 crore people.
One achievement of the ministry that was promoted was that, "Government curbed black marketing of urea. For the first time after independence, urea production in surplus".

NABARD will be assigned a sum of Rs. 20,000 crore so that the sum can be used for a long time for keeping land irrigated. To produce organic manure under MGNREGA people will be asked to dig 10 lakh holes. Also under MGNREGA 5 lakh farm ponds and wells will be dug. Also now for farmers 100% neem quoted urea is available.
