Kisan Bazaar/Shilp Gram

Kisaan Bazaar or Farmer’s Market has definitely been a boon to the farmers of Uttar Pradesh. Now they will not have to travel from one place to another in search of better prices as they will be fixed by the state government. Thanks to the Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, the farmers will also be able to buy high-quality seeds, pesticides and fertilizers, at no added cost. This scheme by the Samajwadi Party has been well appreciated by the farmers and buyers alike.
