“New agricultural reforms will help farmers become entrepreneurs,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He called the new agrarian reform bill “historic” and said it would help boost farmers' incomes. The Prime Minister made the remarks while publishing the autobiography of former Union Minister Balasaheb Vikhe Patil after receiving the Padma Bhushan through video conference and changing the name of Prabhara Palli Shiksha Samiti in Ahmednagar district.
The Prime Minister said, “Today, opportunities are being created to take farmers and farmers from the role of breadwinner to entrepreneurship.” Referring to the high milk, sugar and wheat production in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Haryana and Punjab, Modi said that this model of local initiative would take the country forward.
Modi added, “After independence, the government's priority was to increase food production. So the whole focus was on increasing production. The farmers have worked hard to achieve the target, ”he said.
