''I made it clear that if Govt is ready to make amendments, it doesn't mean there is any problem in farm laws. People in a particular state are misinformed,'' he further said.

''We have started to provide MSP, 50% more than the production cost. Also, ₹1 lakh crore agriculture infrastructure fund has been given under Atmanirbhar package. We have tried to ensure the requisite investment reaches the agriculture sector,'' Tomar further said.

''15th Finance Commission has recommended for providing ₹2.36 lakh crores to gram panchayats, which has been accepted by the Cabinet. Around ₹43,000 crore have been sanctioned for healthcare in rural areas. ₹2.8 lakh crores will be spent via gram panchayats in five years.''
