The farmers are in a very delicate situation and the Government certainly needs to look at them and at their issues with empathy. It is time to switch from a policy of deciding upon a minimum support price to be given to farmers for the food grains to a policy that ensures a minimum income for sustenance required by a farmer. Farmer is considered as the backbone of India along with the soldier but both these pillars need to be handled with care as the future of India might be jeopardized if the country neglects them . . . .
