Agrarian protests under the BJP government have increased from 628 in 2014 to 4,837 in 2016 (more than 6.5 times increase). Farm income growth reached a 14 year low under Modi while MSP growth rate fell from 19.3% during UPA years to 3.6% under the current BJP govt.
Other than farm loan waivers, the UPA govt. increased credit to farmers by 7 times between 2004-14 and launched the National Mission on Food Processing in 2012 to support the farmers.
