PM Modi besieges Mamata government
PM Modi further said, “I am saddened today that more than 70 lakh farmers and brothers and sisters in West Bengal have not benefited from this. More than 23 lakh farmers in Bengal have applied online to avail the benefits of the scheme. But the state government has stopped the verification process for so long. The government of Bengal is going to get money from the farmers of their state from the government of India for their political reasons, even though they are not getting that money. Many farmers wrote letters directly to the Government of India. Didn’t even recognize him.
I was amazed at those who ruled Bengal for 30-30 years. With such a political ideology, the whole country knows where the situation has come from in Bengal and if you listen to Mumtaz’s 15-year-old speech, you will know how much this political ideology has destroyed Bengal.

I am satisfied that the rupee is worn or felt in the wrong hands.

PM Modi scoffs at opposition politics
Some leaders are trying to impose their political ideology on the farmers to run the political agenda. They are saying that farmers are at a disadvantage with the new law. You are a farmer yourself and you are saying that you will benefit. Isn’t it true that private people will manipulate and cut your price. “We will not sell our goods if they say so,” Manoj said. The best part is that the test takes place in front of us.
