Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the farmers today and interacted with them. The next instalment under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana was transferred to help the small and marginal farmers. Soon after PM Modi made the announcement, West Bengal government took to Twitter to state that the farmers of West Bengal have been benefitted from the scheme because of the ruling TMC government and CM Mamata Banerjee. The govt has further added that the 7L farmers who have been benefitted is because of the efforts of Mamata Banerjee and her government. A faceoff has now erupted between the two sides.
