PM disburses ₹12,000 crore to six crore farmers

Jan 02, 2020 18:45 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday slammed states, which have not enrolled with the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Yojana (PMKSY), saying that such petty politics has done great damage to the farming community. PM was at a function in Tumakuru where he disbursed Rs 12,000 crore to six crore beneficiaries under the government scheme. PM also gave away the Krishi Karman Award to the selected farmers "Such politics has never strengthened the farmers. Our government understood your (farmers') needs, requirements and your aspirations and accordingly tried to implement the schemes," said PM.
