23 December 2020 –

Farmer’s Day or National Farmer’s Day or KisanDiwas is celebrated every year on the 23rd of December nationwide with great enthusiasm to praise the farmers as they are the spine of India. The day also embarks the birth anniversary of Indian Farmer’s leader and the former Prime Minister of India, Chaudhary Charan Singh.

Chaudhary Charan Singh, the Kisan Leader, was the fifth Prime Minister of India who served the country for a very short period from July 28, 1979, to January 14, 1980. Although he was a very simple-minded man, he introduced many policies to improve the Indian Farmer’s life. He followed the famous slogan – “JAI JAWAN JAI KISAN” which was given for the farmers by LalBahadurShastri, the second Prime Minister of India.
