The perfect answer to undemocratic behaviour of the Congress is to strengthen democracy: PM Modi
Inform, Increase and Improve: PM Modi's 3-point mantra for the BJP Karyakartas
BJP karyakartas stand out among all parties as most pleasant, informed and hard-working: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today interacted with party workers from Puducherry, Vellore, Kanchipuram, Viluppuram and South Chennai through a video conference-based interaction. PM Modi began his interaction by lauding the energy, enthusiasm and dedication of the BJP Karyakartas towards the BJP and the nation.

Responding to questions raised by the Karyakartas on the reforms undertaken in the education sector since 2014, PM Modi said, “We are not only focusing on outlays, but on outcomes. We came up with the National Institutional Ranking Framework that ranks institutions based on objective criteria to ensure that we help institutions improve their quality and make them competitive.”

He further added that similar reforms are underway in the health sector too, with numerous AIIMS coming up in different states of the country in the near future.

Later, when asked about the Congress party trying to discredit national institutions for their political benefit and the ways to counter such narratives, PM Modi replied, “The perfect answer to the undemocratic behavior of the Congress is to strengthen democracy. The people of our country are the greatest force protecting our democracy. The last time the Congress tried to threaten democracy, the people ensured it was stopped. BJP Karyakartas should reach out to the people and tell them the Congress’ DNA is still the same.” In addition, Prime Minister Modi gave a 3-point mantra to the BJP Karyakartas; Inform, Increase and Improve, through which he asked the Karyakartas to reach out to as many people as possible about the achievements of the Central government.

About crop varieties with special traits

The crop varieties with special traits have been developed by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) to address the twin challenges of climate change and malnutrition. Thirty-five such crop varieties with special traits like climate resilience and higher nutrient content have been developed in the year 2021. These include a drought tolerant variety of chickpea, wilt and sterility mosaic resistant pigeonpea, early maturing variety of soybean, disease resistant varieties of rice and biofortified varieties of wheat, pearl millet, maize and chickpea, quinoa, buckwheat, winged bean and faba bean.

These special traits crop varieties also include those that address the anti-nutritional factors found in some crops that adversely affect human and animal health. Examples of such varieties include Pusa Double Zero Mustard 33, first Canola quality hybrid RCH 1 with <2% erucic acid and <30 ppm glucosinolates and a soybean variety free from two anti-nutritional factors namely Kunitz trypsin inhibitor and lipoxygenase. Other varieties with special traits have been developed in soybean, sorghum, and baby corn, among others.
