Panaji: Goa Forward Party (GFP) supremo and Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai on Wednesday alleged that the agriculture department is only doing valuations not disbursing crop loss compensation.

Speaking in a video, Sardesai informed that crop compensation, minimum support price, schemes, and other financial approvals are pending. He also demanded that Shetari Adhar Nidhi should be disbursed in the same season rather than for the next season.

“Compensation is given only to farmers who are members of the ruling party or those who are going to benefit in Zila parishad,” Sardesai alleged. “The farmers should be given compensation irrespective  of  their constituency

He also hit out at the government and stated that while Sharad Pawar’s party is taking loans to pay to farmers, Goa government is taking loans to buy cars for ministers, and renovate houses of ministers. “The government is not focusing on agriculture or fisheries,” he alleged.

Sardesai went on to say that the agriculture minister should resign from his portfolio and hand it over to someone who works.

  1. SHAME on Regional Parties & Independents who Criticize Congress & BJP before election and after election they join these same parties. Today’s & Yesteryears Government includes these Regional Parties & Independents who Criticized Congress & BJP before election. Trusting Regional Parties and Independents is like voting for either Congress & BJP, because after election they are going to join either Congress or BJP.
