@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap To start discussing solutions we first need to acknowledge that problems exist! Not terming every solution seeker who raised uncomfortable questions as antinational would be the first step towards creation a solution.

Broadly the problems in agriculture are as follows, 1/n
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap 1. If tomorrow rice is priced at Rs 200 per Kg we will have food riots.
So there is an upper limit on what can be paid. 2/n
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap There are no 'middlemen' in the system. The aggregator, transporter, distributor, retailer are valuable component of the system. A farm to consumer business will at most amalgamate these functions under a single umbrella 3/n
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap The yield per acre under similar soil and climate conditions are within the same ball park for both Western and Indian farms. So technological solutions architect not possible. 4/n
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap Even american Farmers with thousands of acres of land are operating on razor thin margins. 50% of India is dependent on agriculture and the average land holding is an acre or less. We cannot conjure tens of acres of land for the existing Farmers 5/n
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap The only solution visible to me is, declare agricultural income crisis as an unsolvable problem and create other income sources for the rural sector. I.e. create jobs for tens of crores of Indians 6/n
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap Make in India, Startup India etc were ideas in the right direction. Regretfully they never went beyond the stage of idea and empty slogans!

On top of that Demonetization and GST killed whatever job market existed before 2014...
@Concern_Ind @deepu_cc @5Forty3 @vsgopalan @Alemari_Ambona @mepratap In short we are screwed!

We don't have a solution. And we refuse to HONESTLY discuss the problem because we do not want to acknowledge our failure in seeking solutions!

Hence #antinational #TukdeTukdeGang #foreignFunded #MandirMasjid
