Govt made full efforts to help farmers: PM

New Delhi: Interacting with BJP cadres today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said,’In last few years, NDA govt made full efforts to connect farmers with banks. Over Rs 1 lakh crores transferred to over 10 crore farmers under PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana.’

He added: ‘Our effort was to provide KISAN credit cards to more and more farmers so they can avail loans easilyh. Those who always lied to farmers are shooting from their shoulders, they are misleading farmers.’

Small, marginal farmers, who are 86 per cent, will benefit the most from agriculture reforms, he said.

He also asked all BJP Karyakartas to reach out to farmers on the ground and inform them in a very simplified language about the importance and intricacies of the new farm reforms, how these will empower them.

‘Our ground connect will bust the lies and rumours being spread in virtual world,’ he added.
