A Promise Fulfilled: The Turmeric Triumph in Nizamabad

In the heart of India’s agricultural landscape, a golden revolution has unfolded, altering the destiny of turmeric farmers in Nizamabad. Spearheading this transformation is Shri Arvind Dharmapuri, whose unwavering commitment and relentless pursuit have culminated in the establishment of the National Turmeric Board.

The Journey to Justice:

For decades, the turmeric cultivators of Nizamabad, despite being the top producers in India, grappled with inadequate pricing for their harvest. Their pleas for a dedicated Turmeric Board were consistently overlooked, leading to a historic moment in 2019 when 178 farmers stood as independent candidates in the Lok Sabha elections—a testament to their desperation and determination.

The Bond of Trust:

Amidst this backdrop, Shri Arvind Dharmapuri emerged as a beacon of hope. His pledge, inked on bond paper, was not merely a campaign promise but a sacred vow to the people of Nizamabad. Elected as their Member of Parliament, he swiftly set the wheels in motion, engaging with the highest echelons of the Central Government to turn the dream of a Turmeric Board into a tangible reality.

The Golden Dawn:

On the 4th of October, 2023, the farmers’ long-standing struggle bore fruit as the Turmeric Board was officially notified. This milestone has been nothing short of revolutionary, catapulting the price of turmeric from Rs. 6,000 to an astounding Rs. 20,000 per quintal. This threefold increase in income is a resounding affirmation of the Modi government’s dedication to uplifting farmers’ livelihoods.

The Harvest of Hard Work:

 Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of doubling farmers’ income has been surpassed in Nizamabad, with incomes more than tripling, showcasing the government’s commitment to the agrarian community. The National Turmeric Board stands as a symbol of Shri Arvind Dharmapuri’s integrity and the government’s resolve to foster agricultural prosperity.

As we approach the upcoming elections, let us reflect on this golden chapter of progress and prosperity. It is a narrative of promises kept, of relentless advocacy, and of a future bright with the hues of turmeric—a future crafted by the hands of Shri Arvind Dharmapuri.

Join us in continuing this journey towards agricultural excellence and vote for a leader who has proven his mettle. Vote for Shri Arvind Dharmapuri, a true ally of the farmer, a champion of the soil.
