The leaders said that every year the rents rates are touching the sky, in addition to this, the input price and interest rates have become a burden to the tenant farmers.
They said that there is no mechanism to enforce the laws which made for the tenant farmers and also said that there is no topic on helping the tenant farmer during the natural disaster.
At the state level bankers meeting over the crop loans, there is no discussion on tenant farmers crop loans.
In the letter, they said that the tenant farmers should also be considered for agriculture schemes and subsidies. In the past, the tenant farmers were not benefited by the crop loan waiver scheme.
Regarding the welfare and development of the tenant farmers, in order to make the agriculture profitable, there is no single department officers or ministers who raise the issue of the farmers.
They also said that even the central government is not providing the crop investment support scheme and neglecting the tenant farmers.
