The farmers present in the meeting discussed in detail the problems being faced by the farmers in the Hamirpur district and also decided on the framework to struggle to solve these problems in the coming times.

Farmers should be given four times compensation in lieu of the land coming in the foreland and the government should also ensure land for rehabilitation. The schemes being run by the government to promote agriculture and horticulture in the district should be brought down to the village level. Feed and fodder should be given to the farmers who are cattle rearers on subsidy and should be provided by the government because without the cooperation of the government, farming, and animal husbandry is not possible. Efforts are being made for horticulture and gardens are being planted under District Hamirpur Shiva and Jaika Project, the farmers who are involved in this should be given facilities and the government should also make arrangements to sell the crops produced.
