Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in West Bengal on a day-long visit where he addressed a farmers rally in Midnapore in West Bengal.
Prime Minister Modi said his government is working to double the income of farmers by 2022.
“My government is your government, it is a government of farmers. Our government worked for farmers… from quality seeds to market, it is important to have warehouse to save the produce,” he said.
Mounting an attack on the state government, PM Modi said nothing can be achieved without approval of the “syndicate” in West Bengal. “Democracy is throttled in the state,” he said.
He further said, “I hope the West Bengal government will take required steps to create infrastructure for farmers. We want our farmers to use latest technology.”
Meanwhile, a mishap occurred at the rally and some farmers were injured. They were taken to a hospital where PM Modi met them.
