23 December 2017 Current Affairs: Kisan Diwas (Farmer's Day) is observed every year on 23 December to celebrate the birth anniversary of the fifth prime minister.

He was the PM of India for a very short tenure starting from 28th of July 1979 until 14th January 1980.  

A Kisan leader, Late Chaudhary Charan Singh belonged to a peasant family. This was the reason he could relate himself to the issues of the farmers and therefore, he did the best to support them.

When he became the Prime Minister of India in July 1979 he made many changes to improve the lives of the farmers.

This is also an interesting fact that as the Prime Minister of India, Chaudhary Charan Singh never visited the Lok Sabha.

He also served as the Deputy Prime Minister during the reign of Morarji Desai.

He introduced Budget 1979 which was designed to accomplish the needs of the farmers in all respects. It had several policies in favour of Indian farmers.
