Harsimrat Badal urges Modi to allow MPs to use MPLAD funds for stubble management machinery

Chandigarh, November 06, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Union food processing industries minister Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal today urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow MPs to use MPLAD funds to curb the practice of stubble burning by funding stubble cleaning and super seeder machines to farmers of their constituencies.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, the union minister stated that one of the major reasons for unabated stubble burning practice across North India was the high cost of machines which poor farmers are not in a position to afford.

She said though a central scheme- under the name of ‘promotion of agricultural mechanization for In-Situ Management of crop residue in the states of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and NCT of Delhi’ provided subsidy to incentivize farmers not to burn crop residue, the number of machines provided was much less than needed.

She apprised the PM that in absence of much-needed high-cost machinery, farmers did not have any option but to get rid of their crop residue.

Requesting the Prime Minister to take all measures needed to address the serious issue of stubble burning which had turned the entire region into a gas chamber, Mrs. Badal said if MPs were allowed to purchase balers and other associated machinery for Panchayats, FSOs or group of farmers, it would go a long way in improving the environment by curbing the practice of stubble burning and reducing the air pollution levels across the region.

Stating that the Stubble burning practice was not only responsible for polluting the environment, but was also rendering the soil less fertile by burning the nutrients in it, the union minister appealed to the PM to empower the MPs to use their MPLAD scheme for arranging high-cost machinery needed for better management of crop residue to the farmers.
