Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said on Sunday that the central government's decision to increase the minimum support price (MSP) for kharif crops was a step towards achieving the target of doubling farmers' income by 2022.

Farmer welfare is the top priority of the governments at the Centre and in the state, he told a 'Kisan Dhanyavad' rally in Gohana in Sonipat district.

He said that the prosperity of any state or country depended on the progress and prosperity of its farmers, which would lead to a new era of happiness in the world.

Khattar said that during its tenure of about four years, the BJP government in the state had framed laws and policies to provide the benefit of government schemes to the poor and brought complete transparency in providing jobs.

He said that 30,000 'Group D' posts would soon be advertised.

The state government has so far provided more than 28,000 government jobs to the youth in a transparent manner, he said.

The chief minister said that the government had revamped the entire system of transfers and providing jobs with the use of technology and fully eliminated the role of middlemen.
