Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasized that agriculture will play a pivotal role in making India the world’s third-largest economy. Addressing a large gathering at the PM Kisan Samman Sammelan in Varanasi on Tuesday, he reiterated the central government’s commitment to enhancing farmers’ living standards and prioritizing their income growth.

During the event, PM Modi released the 17th installment of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi, disbursing over 20,000 crore rupees to around 9.26 crore farmers. He also awarded certificates to more than 30,000 women from Self Help Groups (SHGs) as Krishi Sakhis.

Highlighting government efforts, Modi noted that more than one crore farmers were added to the PM Kisan scheme during the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra. He underscored his administration’s focus on farmers and housing for the poor since the start of his third term.

The Prime Minister highlighted initiatives to boost agro product exports, creating new marketing platforms for local products like Varanasi’s Langra mangoes, Ghazipur’s lady fingers, and Jaunpur’s radishes.

Reflecting on the recent General Elections, Modi noted that over 31 crore women participated, marking the highest female voter turnout globally, equivalent to the population of the United States.

Union Agriculture Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan reiterated the government’s goals to increase agricultural production, reduce input costs, and ensure better prices for farmers through proper MSP. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath praised Varanasi’s development under Modi’s leadership. Other state Chief Ministers and ministers joined the event via video conferencing.

This visit marked Modi’s first to Varanasi after his third consecutive swearing-in as Prime Minister. He received a grand welcome from party workers and expressed gratitude to the people of Kashi for their continued support, reaffirming his deep connection to the land. Modi also held a meeting with farmers at the Kisan Sammelan.
