BJP believes in Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas. BJP believes that India can only develop when North, South, East and West all develop: PM Modi
Honest taxpaying citizens are the backbone of the country as they contribute to the country from their hard-earned money: PM Modi
With the rolling out of GST, there are around 150 items that attract zero per cent tax and some 400 items that have taxes on them reduced: PM
It is our firm belief that a healthy India is a pre-condition for a prosperous India, says PM Modi
In a historic step, the MSP has been increased to ensure that farmers get at least 150% of the cost of production: PM Modi
We are not like the Congress, which will only pay lip service to farmers but ignore their well-being. Wherever Congress is in power, farmers suffer: PM Modi
For Congress, national security and defence sector is either a punching bag or a funding source: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with booth-level Karyakartas of BJP in Tamil Nadu today. The video interaction is one of the many such interactions of PM Modi with the booth level Karyakartas.

Beginning his interaction, PM Modi praised the Tamil language and culture saying it is one of the oldest in the world. PM Modi further said, “BJP believes in Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas. We believe that India can only develop when the North, South, East and West all develop equally.”

Responding to a question raised by a Karyakarta in Kanyakumari, Prime Minister Modi said that the people of middle class in this country have always contributed and sacrificied a lot for the nation’s progress without asking for anything in return. In this regard, he gave several examples of the significant contributions of the middle class people to ensure better living standards for all. He described, “Honest tax paying citizens are the backbone of the country as they contribute to the country’s progress with their hard-earned money.”

PM Modi then interacted with Karyakartas from Namakkal where he was asked about his views on the healthcare system in India. To this, he replied, “It is our firm belief that a healthy India is a pre-condition to a prosperous India. Healthcare must be affordable for all if we want to ensure India’s growth.” He further listed out key healthcare initiatives launched under his government which will go a long way in fulfilling this goal of a healthy India.

The last leg of PM’s interaction with party workers saw him scathingly criticise the Congress for not only ignoring the national security of the country but also for the widespread corruption that bred under its watch. Lashing out at the Congress, he said, “Sadly, for the Congress, national security and the defence sector is either a punching bag or a source of funding. They looted the defence sector under numerous scams from the jeep scam in the 40s and 50s to the Bofors scam in the 80s and several others like Augusta even after that. They are only concerned about the money even if that damages the morale and safety of our forces.”

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.
