Summary

The article contains a critical assessment of the agriculture-centric proposals included in the first Budget (2004) of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government of India. The article explores the root cause of the on-going agricultural crisis in the country and argues that despite the declared pro-agricultural stance taken by the incumbent regime, the measures proposed in the budget fail miserably in addressing the real issues. Hence they are unlikely to be successful in lessening the plight of the thousands of distressed farmers of this agro-based country. The real solution, it is argued, lies in going Organic.
