He takes cue from Chaudhury Charan Singh, former PM of India, when Kisan census taken in 1970’s: “Kisan census is taken, most of the farmers not even hold 2 hectare of land”. PM said “ Till now 86% of farmers holds less than 2 hectare of land and the figure of those farmers are 12 crore”. PM Modi also said,
“Farmers who don't even have bank accounts, how would they get loans”.
He started dig at opposition especially at Mamata government said, “She has not implemented the Kisan Samman Nidhi that led many small farmers deprived from their right.”He takes dig at Sharad Pawar “He said reforms are needed but now he is taking U turn.” He quoted Manmohan Singh “there are other rigidities because of whole marketing regime setup on 1930 prevent farmer selling the produce where they get higher rate of return”. He added “It is our intention to remove all those handicaps which come in the way of India realising its vast potential at one large common market.”
He also focuses on Green Revolution during Shastri Government and the andolon or protests taken at that time, but it benefited the farmers. He said every time government take any reform Left called them “American Agents”. He gives open call to farmers for talk over table rather sitting on road.
“MSP hein, tha, rahega and ration scheme to poor farmer also be there.” He said.
In his speech PM Modi said that new foreign ideologies are inculcating the society, the new FDI or the Foreign Destructive Ideology, and ask countrymen to not fall trap in these for development of country. He also slams certain people “a new entity has come up in the country like shromjivi(workers), krishijivi(farmers) it is 'AndolanJivi'. They can be spotted wherever there is a protest, be it agitation by lawyers, students, or labourers, explicitly or implicitly. They cannot live without 'andolan', we have to identify them & protect nation from them said PM. He said it is “new jamat is created” who give false ideological stand and enter in every protest. Country should identify them, they are parasites.
