During a recent speech, Prime Minister Modi highlighted the significant groundwork accomplished by his administration over the past decade, setting the stage for future advancements over the next quarter-century. Speaking at a rally in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district, the Prime Minister criticized the Congress for failing to finish irrigation projects in the state.

He asserted that the party had not taken significant actions to benefit the underprivileged, suggesting that any initiatives they introduced were mismanaged. Farmers have been provided with irrigation facilities, while the poor have been given pucca houses. Previously, when the government was in power, there were instances where the financial aid intended for farmers was misappropriated before it could reach them.

Modi spoke about the support of farmers in Yavatmal:

“In our current administration, we have implemented a system where farmers receive their payments directly in their bank accounts with just a click of a button.” The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of ensuring that the full benefits of government schemes reach the intended recipients during his address to women self-help groups in Yavatmal.

Prime Minister Modi allocated a significant amount of Rs 825 crore to support self-help groups in the state. In addition to that, he allocated financial support through various government schemes to assist farmers in the state, including the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi and the Maharashtra Rajya Namo Shetkari Samman Yojana.

Modi expressed confidence in the NDA winning over 400 Lok Sabha seats in the upcoming parliamentary elections. He highlighted the government’s achievement of providing piped water supply to 1.25 crore households and emphasized the successful completion of irrigation projects that were previously stalled during the Congress regime.

The Prime Minister highlighted the government’s initiative to construct large storage facilities for food grains such as rice. This move aims to support small farmers by providing them with the option to store their produce during times of low market prices, preventing them from selling at a loss. The construction of these godowns will offer farmers a valuable resource for managing their harvests effectively.
