Chief Minister Narendra Modi today said the present rulers at the Centre have shown criminal negligence towards India’s agro-based economy.

Kicking off the Krishi Mahotsav and cattle health fair at Diyodar village of Banaskantha district today the Chief Minister said that Centre’s criminal negligence towards agriculture sector, which is the mainstay of Indian economy, has ruined the villages, farmers and farming. “The present rulers at Centre have crushed the dreams nurtured by Lalbahadur Shastri, Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi for the prosperity and uplifting of villages and agriculture”, he said.

 

A large number of farmers and cattle-breeders including rural women from the five districts of north Gujarat thronged the Diyodar village to partake in the eighth edition of the month-long Krishi Mahotsav that began from May 6 this year. The Chief Minister lauded the farmers for putting faith in the knowledge imparted through the Krishi Mahotsav and for using scientific methods of farming along with the hard work. He felicitated the progressive farmers and their families.

Referring to the hard days of the past the Chief Minister said the farmers used to struggle hard in the scorching heat only to get little produce from the saline earth of this region. “But owing to the success of Krishi Mahotsav and the availability of Narmada water the farmers are now successfully getting high yield”, he said.

The Krishi Mahotsav has helped the farmers of north Gujarat to the crops like cultivate pomegranate and sugar-free potatoes along with the traditional crops. Even the farmers who have small portion of land have started earning lakhs of rupees by constructing greenhouse net, he said.

Chief Minister said the state government desires to boost the income levels of farmers by doing value-additions in the crops and by ensuring that the farmers get high price for their produce. “We want to put before the world an exemplary model for agricultural development”, he said.

 

Speaking on the occasion Agriculture Minister Dilip Sanghai said the state government organizes Krishi Mahotsav with a view to acquaint farmers with the latest research and modern methods of farming, marketing structure, value-addition etc. The programme has helped to raise the income of farmers and brought about a revolutionary change in agriculture scenario in Gujarat, he said.

People from all corners of India are seen in Asansol. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol: PM Modi
PM Modi says on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Didi will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state
In Asansol, PM Modi says Mamata Banerjee has skipped several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues

 

Addressing a huge rally in West Bengal’s Asansol ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”
