Government has not scrapped off the subsidy on FISP, Scott tells rally

Vice President Guy Scott says government has not scrapped off the subsidy under the Farmer Input Support Program (FISP).
Dr Scott said the Patriotic Front (PF) government only wants to work on the system to make it better in order for small scale farmers whom the program was meant for to be benefiting from it.
The Vice President further advised Zambians not to listen to people complaining about government’s agriculture policies adding that such people are the ones against the PF government’s development agenda.
He said this when he addresses a rally to drum up support for Lameck Mangani a PF candidate in the Chipata Central Parliamentary by-election slated for July 25, at Chipata Basic School ground in Chipata district in Eastern province.
Meanwhile Dr Scott who is also PF party Vice President has asked electorates in Chipata Central to give Mr Mangani a 100 % vote during the by-election.
