Their priority is not how water reaches to farmers...need of the hour is to acquaint farmers with latest technology. We should create such systems that there is no question of them dying. Have we thought about goods trains properly? Focus is only on passenger trains. We need goods trains for what farmer produces."
We have great potential for agriculture but farmeres are killed here:
