NEW DELHI| Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday targeted the Left parties and the Congress directly on the issue of farmers of the country. Accusing the opposition of misleading farmers, the Prime Minister said that during his reign, farmers were ignored, but today when the agricultural sector is improving, they are holding back obstacles. Accusing the Left parties and the Congress of inciting the farmers to agitate, Modi said, “Those who flagged Bengal, they have a government in Kerala and before that, there was a government of those who ruled the country for 50 years, but Kerala I do not have APMC mandis. I ask them that if we do a program to take photos here, then make agitations in Kerala and open mandis there. “
On the issue of APMC, the Prime Minister told these parties, “You have time to mislead the farmers of Punjab, then there is no system inside Kerala and if this system is good then why is it not inside Kerala.”
Modi asked the Left parties and the Congress in a questioning tone, “Why are you going on a double policy? What kind of politics is it doing that has no logic, no facts?”
He accused the opposition of making false allegations, spreading rumors and intimidating farmers. Modi criticized the opposition parties, saying, “These people are not willing to accept any scale of democracy, but they only see their benefit, their selfishness. The games they are playing with their flags in the name of farmers Now you have to hear this truth. ”
Modi added, “In the political arena, our own land is searching for herbs to keep themselves alive. But the farmer of the country has recognized them and the farmer of the country is never going to give them this herb.”
Prime Minister Modi earlier on Friday during a program to send more than Rs 18,000 crore as the next installment of the scheme to the bank account of more than nine crore beneficiaries of the Prime Minister’s Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, the ambitious scheme of the Central Government Launched by pressing the button.
He informed that, “Under this scheme till now, 1 lakh 10 thousand crores has gone to the bank account of the farmers.”
Modi targeted the Left parties in West Bengal over the issue of farmers deprived of PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi.
Modi said that in West Bengal, these people never raised their voice to get PM-Kisan money to the farmers and have gone up from there to Punjab. In such a situation, the question arises on their being farmer-friendly.
He said, “I want to say this with great pain and anguish in front of the countrymen today, that the people who ruled in Bengal for 30 years, where did they bring Bengal from a political ideology, this whole country You know and listen to the 15-year-old speech of Mamta ji (West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee), you will know how much this ideology ruined Bengal. ”
The Prime Minister said that due to the policies of the previous governments, the worst ruin was that farmer who neither had more land nor more resources. He said that these small farmers did not get money from banks, because they did not even have a bank account. He said that earlier the benefit of crop insurance scheme was hardly available to small farmers.
