Farm laws have not been introduced overnight, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday while adding that over the last 20 to 30 years, Centre and State Governments had detailed discussions on these reforms.
"Farm Laws have not been introduced overnight. Over the last 20-30 years, central government and state governments had detailed discussions on these reforms. Agriculture experts, economists and progressive farmers have been demanding reforms," said PM Modi while addressing farmers at the 'Kisan Kalyan' event in Raisen through video conferencing.
"I request all political parties with folded hands, please keep all the credit. I am giving credit to all your old election manifestos. I just want ease in the life of farmers, I want their progress and want modernity in agriculture," he added.
Today Rs 16 thousand crores are being transferred into the bank accounts of 35 lakh farmers of Madhya Pradesh, PM Modi stated.
The Prime Minister further said the modern system that India has created in the last five to six years is being discussed and appreciated all over the world today.
"The modern facility available to the farmers in the big countries of the world should be provided to the farmers of India also, it cannot be delayed any longer," said PM Modi.
"In a rapidly changing global scenario, the farmer situation cannot be accepted as becoming helpless due to lack of facilities and modern methods. It is already too late. The things that should have been done 25-30 years ago are happening now," he added.
In the last six years, the Centre has worked keeping in mind the needs of farmers, the Prime Minister stated.
