In the past, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had inspired the farmers and said that in view of the threat from climate change, the need of the hour is to lay emphasis on cow-based natural farming. Yogi Adityanath had said that due to climate change, the maximum damage has been done to the land and water. Messing with Mother Earth is wrong. Which should be closed at any cost. Then Yogi insisted that for this it is necessary that cow-based natural farming should be done instead of chemical farming. In such a situation, we can say that this announcement of the Finance Minister will prove to be a boon for those doing natural farming.
