Delhi high command govt of Puducherry failed on all fronts, says PM Modi while addressing a public meeting
NDA will work to make Best Puducherry. By Best I mean: Business Hub, Education Hub, Spiritual Hub and Tourism Hub, says PM
MLAs belonging to Congress party were openly talking about corruption, directly linked to the family of the former chief minister: PM Modi
I bow in reverence to the Manakula Vinayagar Swamy Temple and the Sreemath Guru Sithanandha Swamigal Devasthanam, says PM Modi

Addressing a public meeting in Puducherry today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “There is something special about Puducherry that keeps bringing me back here again and again.” He accused Congress government for its negligence and said, “In the long list of non-performing Congress governments over the years, the previous Puducherry Government has a special place. The ‘High Command’ Government of Puducherry failed on all fronts.”

“Take any sector - education, filling of medical seats, welfare of SC-STs, there was only loot. MLAs belonging to the Congress Party were openly talking about the corruption directly linked to the family of the former Chief Minister,” he added.

Taking a dig at Congress party, the Prime Minister asserted, “I had a reasonably long experience in politics, I have seen many elections but Puducherry Elections 2021 is unique because the sitting Chief Minister has not been given a ticket. Previous Congress government headed by V Narayanasamy in Puducherry was a disaster.”

“So many years of loyalty, lifting the slippers of his leader, doing wrong translation to impress his leader. Still no ticket. This clearly shows how much of a disaster his government has turned out to be,” he added while addressing the rally in Puducherry.

Talking about the NDA’s development work, he said, “I had shared my vision for Puducherry in one word- Best. NDA will work to make Best Puducherry. By Best I mean: Business Hub, Education Hub, Spiritual Hub and Tourism Hub.”

Reminiscing the great legends of Puducherry, PM Modi remarked, “When I think of Puducherry I think about Bharathiyar. I think about Sri Aurobindo, Sithanda Swamy and Thollaikkathu Siddhar. I bow in reverence to the Manakula Vinayagar Swamy Temple and the Sreemath Guru Sithanandha Swamigal Devasthanam.”

“Seeing a huge wave in favour of NDA in four poll-bound states and one UT,” said PM Modi while requesting everyone to vote for the NDA in upcoming assembly polls.

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.
