Nadda flags off e-bikes for Namo Kisan programme

Kick starting his two-day visit to poll-bound Gujarat, BJP national president JP Nadda on Tuesday flagged off the e-bikes for the Namo Kisan Panchayat programme in Gandhinagar.
On the occasion, Nadda listed out the welfare schemes rolled out by the Central government for farmers and hailed PM Modi for launching the schemes. “All the leaders used the names of farmers strategically but did nothing for them. If there is anybody who has done things on the ground for the farmers in independent India, it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he said.
The BJP chief listed down the schemes for the farmers and said that the Modi government worked to strengthen the poor during the pandemic through the PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana.
“When tragedy struck a century ago, more people died of starvation than from disease. The corona pandemic was the biggest tragedy of the century. Prime Minister Modi worked to strengthen the poor people by giving 5 kg of wheat, 5 kg of rice and pulses to 80 crore people by running the PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana. The scheme is ongoing even today,” he said.
“Nobody thought about the farmers. But PM Modi did the work of sending Rs 6,000 annually to the accounts of more than 11 crore farmers under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. The budget for the farmers has been increased by six times,” Nadda added.
Exuding confidence in the work done by the BJP government in the state and at the Centre for the farmers, the BJP chief said that the leaders of the party can confidently go among the public.
“There are a few people who’ve always done politics in the name of farmers. But the BJP has worked to alleviate the pain of farmers by understanding them,” he said.
