Pakistan is an agricultural country. Majority of Pakistani live in villages. The villagers depend on agriculture. They are either farmers or workers on the agricultural fields. Our industries and urban business also depend on agriculture. Thus a Pakistani farmer truly represents Pakistan. He can be called the son of the soil. It is on his sweat and labor that our progress and prosperity depend.
It is he who feeds and clothes the people. A Pakistani farmer is very hard working. He is very busy throughout the year. For him, there is no rest. He is engaged in tilling the soil, sowing the seeds, watering the fields, reaping and harvesting the crop and then taking it to them by the market to sell it. And yet he is very poor . He is being exploited money – lenders .the middlemen and the government servants.
His needs are few and simple and yet they are not met. Most of the Pakistani farmers are small farmers or tenants. Their exploitation should be stopped. They should be distributed agricultural land. They should be given cheap loans They should be given and other facilities and return for their produce. The irrigation better seeds, fertilizers facilities should be improved.
Pakistan cannot prosper until Pakistani farmer is poor and miserable. He is the very soul of the country. He is as important as a soldier, a doctor or an engineer. The Pakistani farmer should be given his due regard and status. Every effort should be made to make him happy, rich and comfortable. His labors and sweat should not go unrewarded.
He should be taught how to read and write. Education should be taken to his doorsteps so that his children do not remain illiterate. He should be provided with facilities . He is the bread – earner of the country better medical and health and should be treated accordingly. If he himself remains hungry, ill-clad or ignorant how Pakistan can make progress Some schemes have been started to, But many more such schemes improve his economic and social condition need to be started.
No doubt, every government has taken few bold steps in this respect The present government is but still much more is required doing much for the prosperity and betterment of the farmers and the villagers. We should not only depend upon slogans Um but must do something practically.
