The Ministry of Agriculture does not have tools to solve all problems just like that – said Krzysztof Ciecióra, Deputy Minister of Agriculture in “Fakty po Faktach”. PSL MP Stefan Krajewski said that “Polish farmers lost PLN 10 billion due to the incompetence of the United Right government.”
Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Krzysztof Ciecióra i member of the Polish People’s Party Stefan Krajewski talked in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 about who is responsible for the crisis in Polish agriculture.
Ciecióra argued that his ministry “is indeed one of the most difficult ministries, a very big responsibility”.
– The Ministry of Agriculture does not have tools to solve all problems just like that. Because Ministry of National Defence it can buy some tanks, train some soldiers and it goes a little bit forward – he said. He admitted that he “flattens things up a bit”. – We are most often complained to the Ministry of Agriculture for low prices of agricultural products. We have no influence on this, it is most often dictated by the stock exchange and various other market factors – he continued.
– However, we have an impact on the fact that, for example, we raised pension for farmers, we abolished the obligation to transfer the farm to farmers to obtain this pension, (we introduced – editorial note) agricultural retail trade, we increased, exceeded the EU average in terms of subsidies per hectare. There are really a lot of these achievements – argued the Deputy Minister.
PSL MP: PiS perfectly solves problems that it has created itself
MP Krajewski assessed that “PIS he perfectly solves the problems he created himself. – 10 billion zlotys were lost by Polish farmers because of the incompetence of the government of the United Right, because of the incompetence of the management of the ministry. (…) Nothing has been settled – he said.
He reminded that on July 15, the People’s Party proposed a bill that assumed the introduction of a deposit for grain from Ukraine. “It was a good solution,” Krajewski pointed out. “Unfortunately, the government did not listen to us, the ministry did not listen to us,” he said.
