BJP President JP Nadda has said NDA government has launched various schemes for the empowerment of farmers.
Addressing farmers in party headquarters in Delhi Thursday evening, Mr Nadda said Rs. 6,000 have been deposited in the account of 10 crore farmers under the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana.
He said the soul of India resides in the farmers and it is the farmer who is the backbone of India.
Mr Nadda stated that during earlier governments, many policies had apathy towards farmers.
But Prime Minister Narendra Modi took up the cause of the farmers and implemented the report of MS Swaminathan.
And for the first time, MSP of one and a half times the cost was given to the farmers.
