Screen Grab (PMO India)
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that new agricultural reforms have given farmers new options and new legal protection and at the same time the old system also continues if someone chooses to stay with that. He assured the farmers of the country that the new agricultural reforms have been introduced for their development. The Prime Minister was addressing a gathering in his parliamentary constituency Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh yesterday.

The Prime Minister said, the government not just wants to provide them new market opportunities but also wants to strengthen the Mandi system. He said, the farmers of the country will lead the Atmanirbhar Bharat campaign.

The Prime Minister alleged that miscommunication is being spread by the Opposition about the agricultural reforms. He said that a new trend has come up recently where every initiative taken by his government is opposed on mere apprehensions and misconceptions. Mr Modi said, decades of deceit make farmers apprehensive but now there is no deceit and the NDA government is working with pure intentions.

He alleged that in the name of farmers, many packages and projects were announced earlier but their benefits never reached the poor farmers. He added the government is also constantly answering those farmer families who still have some concerns. He expressed confidence that those farmers, who have some doubts on agricultural reforms today, will also take advantage of these agricultural reforms in future and increase their income.

The Prime Minister asserted that the NDA government has a proven track record of keeping promises. He said, the NDA Government is helping farmers and trying to increase their income by providing seeds, irrigation facilities, market and insurance cover to them.
