Following PM Narendra Modi’s unique interaction with farmers, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on December 25 claimed that efforts are being made to confuse the farmers in the country. While PM Modi busted lies being spread about the new agriculture reform laws, Goyal said those who were protesting in the Central hall, their own Delhi government has notified accepting the new agricultural law. Further, he also said that the Prime Minister’s address on Friday have cleared the misunderstanding around the three new agricultural laws.
Goyal’s comment comes after PM Modi released over Rs 18,000 crore to more than nine crore farmers under ‘Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi’ scheme. Under the PM-KISAN Scheme, a financial benefit of Rs.6000/- per year is provided to the eligible beneficiary farmers, payable in three equal 4-monthly instalments of Rs.2000/- each. The fund is transferred directly to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries. The PM also had a conversation with farmers from seven different states who shared their experiences with PM-KISAN and also on various other initiatives taken by the Government for the welfare of farmers.
