  • The biggest obstacle in Bihar’s connectivity has been due to large rivers. This is the reason that special attention was paid to the construction of bridges when the PM package was announced. Under this package, a total of 17 bridges are being built over Ganga river, most of which have been completed: PM Modi
  • In our country, the system of buying and selling of the farm products, the laws related to it were such that they tied the hands and feet of the farmers. Under the guise of these laws, powerful gangs were born in the country who were taking advantage of the helplessness of the farmers. After all, how long will this go on?: PM Modi
  • The new agricultural reforms have given the farmer freedom that he can sell his crop to anyone, anywhere. If he gets more profit in the market, he will sell his crop there. If there is more profit outside the market, selling there will not be prohibited: PM Modi
  • In states like Madhya Pradesh, UP, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, pulses are abundant. In these states, farmers have received 15 to 25 per cent more prices than last year directly. Pulses mills have also purchased directly from farmers there, paid directly to them: PM Modi
  • These laws, these changes are not against agricultural mandis. It would still be the same. Rather, it is our NDA government which has continuously worked to modernize the agricultural markets of the country: PM Modi
  • A second law has been enacted to protect the interests of farmers. The security of the farmer’s farm, good seeds, manure to the farmer, will be the responsibility of those who will get into a contract with the farmers: PM Modi
  • I assure every farmer of the country that the MSP system will continue to operate as before. Similarly, the way the campaign is run for government procurement every season, they will continue to run as before: PM Modi
