‘Past govts focused on productivity, ignored farmers’ profitability’: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that for far too long governments have been focused on increasing productivity and have ignored farmers’ profitability.

PM Modi’s remarks come as farmer groups have been protesting against the Modi government’s recently enacted farm laws.

PM Modi said that they are committed to increasing the income of farmers and added that opportunities are now being created for the transition of farmers into entrepreneurs.

Referring to high milk, sugar, and wheat production in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Haryana and Punjab, PM Modi said such models of local enterprise will take the country forward.

PM Modi was speaking after releasing the autobiography of former Union Minister Balasaheb Vikhe Patil and renaming the Pravara Rural Education Society via video conference.

Dr Balasaheb Vikhe Patil served as a Member of Lok Sabha for multiple terms. His autobiography is titled 'Deh Vechwa Karani' which means 'dedicating one's life for a noble cause’.

PM Modi said that Dr Balasaheb Vikhe Patil had dedicated his entire life to the benefit of society through his path-breaking work in various fields, including agriculture and cooperatives.
