PANAJI: The Aam Aadmi Party leader and former Panch of Moira Panchayat Mahesh Satelkar distributed fertilizer to the farmers of Moira village in the Aldona constituency on Sunday.
Also present were panch members Suryakant bhatlekar, Pooja chari, ex-Sarpanch Santosh Chari, ex-member Rama Satelkar.
Mahesh Satelkar and his team have been distributing fertilizer to farmers for the past four years at no cost. As part of this initiative, this time, 50 kg bags of fertilizer were distributed to each farmer in Moira. About 350 farmers benefit annually from this initiative.
Satelkar said, “The soaring prices of agricultural commodities have made it difficult for farmers to continue farming. Although there are many government schemes, they do not reach the farmers when they are needed. In addition to distributing fertilizer, we also provide seeds and other items necessary for farming”.
He emphasized that if any farmer has difficulty continuing agriculture practices, he can contact Satelkar and his team for assistance.
