Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Sirajul Haq has reforms in agriculture sector hold key importance to empower small farmers and improve the economy of country.

Talking to a delegation of farmers which called on him at Mansoora on Tuesday, he said the inflation, unavailability of water, fake pesticides and costly inputs and agriculture technology were the major problems being faced by the growers.

Sirajul Haq said that the incumbent government like its predecessors has also ignored the agriculture sector and only used magic of words to console the farming community.

The farmers were not provided relief on per unit electricity rate for agriculture tube-wells despite their longstanding demands, he said adding that the government should allot government land on lease to educated young graduates.—INP
