PM Narendra Modi to transfer Rs 18,000 crore to bank accounts of farmers under PM-Kisan scheme today

It has been around a month already since we are seeing farmers from Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana and other parts of the country continuously protesting at the outskirts of the National Capital.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be addressing virtually at least 9 crore farmers from different states of the country. He will also be releasing a second tranche of the financial aide that is ₹18,000 crores under the PM Kisan scheme and he is also expected to talk about the benefits of the new Farm Laws. Several central government ministers, MPs, MLAs and BJP office bearers will be present with their electorate to listen in to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s virtual interaction with farmers.
