There is Agri Junction i.e. an agricultural entrepreneur trained Swavalamban Yojana for the youth of the Department of Agriculture, Government of Uttar Pradesh. The benefit of this scheme is given to the eligible youth in all the development blocks of the state. In all the districts of the state, the Deputy Director of Agriculture nominates the youth for this program through the application form.
The government’s motive behind this program is to turn young entrepreneurs into entrepreneurs. But while he was Deputy Director of Agriculture in Barabanki district, an officer along with other employees of his office has done a million dollar scam in this scheme. In fact, in the Agri Junction scheme, the government helps the youth to the tune of four lakh rupees. In this, he has to invest 50 thousand rupees himself, while the bank gives a loan of three and a half lakhs.
Money from many schemes was absorbed
The whole matter is related to the Deputy Director of the Agriculture Office of Barabanki District. Where an officer named Anil Sagar, while holding the post of Deputy Director of Agriculture, himself absorbed money from many government schemes. A baboon named Prabal Pratap Singh posted in this Deputy Director of the Agriculture Office, which has been placed at the same table for 10 years. He is said to be the real player in this whole mess. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s order is also being openly disobeyed. Because there is a clear order from the Chief Minister that no baboon in any department can stay on a table for more than three years.
However, Anil Sagar, who held the post of Deputy Director of Agriculture in Barabanki for almost five years, was transferred a few months before this revelation. He is currently posted as Deputy Director of Agriculture Defense at Krishi Bhawan, Lucknow Headquarters. But the revelation of the exploits of this officer, who defrauded the government schemes, has created an uproar in the entire district.
The scam of the department’s schemes was exposed by Sunil Kumar, a farmer from Barabanki district. Not only this, Sunil Kumar has also taken this entire matter to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath through IGRS.
Babu posted on the same platform for 10 years
Evidence has been adduced on behalf of Sunil Kumar. According to him, Babu Prabal Pratap Singh is posted in the same table for 10 years in the Deputy Director Agriculture Office. Prabal Pratap Singh acted at the behest of Anil Sagar. Along with this, the grant money from all the schemes like agricultural school and associate farmer operated under Agri Junction and Atma Yojana were transferred to the account of dozens of other people, including his private driver Sanjay Jaiswal. In other words, the subsidy amount received under these schemes, which should have gone to the account of the eligible youth, was transferred to the account of others, including his driver.

The government gives a grant of 42 thousand rupees
The government also gives a subsidy of 42 thousand rupees on the interest of the loan of three and a half lakh rupees. Along with this, the government also pays Rs 12,000 per month as rent of Rs 1,000 per month for their shop for a year. Under the scheme, those selected also get licenses for fertilizers, seeds and medicines free of charge. That is, apart from the loan of three and a half lakh rupees received from the bank, the remaining grant amount of about 50 to 60 thousand rupees was transferred to the working account of another.
An explanation is requested from the worker
About all these revelations, the current Deputy Director of Agriculture Shravan Kumar in Barabanki said that he has received the complaint. An explanation has been requested from the affected employee. On the other hand, regarding Anil Sagar, he said that he is his counterpart officer. Hence the complaint letter that Sunil Kumar has sent to the Chief Minister. The government will conduct an inquiry into the matter. After that, whoever comes out in this investigation will come out. Action will be taken accordingly.
Fisheries department officer Ramesh Chandra said that whoever has his own land can get a grant from his department. In this sequence, Archana Sagar, wife of Anil Sagar, has also applied online and made a grant of 30 lakhs for fish farming.

Crores scam employees
While he was the Deputy Director of Agriculture, an officer along with other employees of his office ran a multi-crore scam in this scheme. This Assistant Director (DD) with the help of his babus wove a web such that the grant of crores which the government received under the scheme was transferred to the account of the driver and other employees of the department, instead of to send it to the account of the young real holder. Then, after getting that amount back to them, the Deputy Director of Agriculture belched along with his babus.
Sunil Kumar Yadav, a farmer leader, has complained to the CM about the whole issue.
Black money playing big schemes too
During his tenure as Deputy Director of Agriculture, he earned black money playing big schemes like Farm School and Associate Farmer operated under Atma Yojana. He also made his own fortune in the district. Not only this, this officer bought land worth billions in his wife’s name. He also received a grant of lakhs from many government schemes. All this feat of the office of the Deputy Director of Agriculture has been exposed by one person. Along with this, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has also sent his complaint through IGRS.
