TMC MP Sougata Roy says ‘PM Modi is using his Kisan scheme for a political purpose’

The latest update with respect to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s farmer outreach, Amit Malviya of the Bhartiya Janata Party tweeted where he said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will transfer Rs. 18,000 crores to Rs. 9,000 crores to farmer families across the country, he further added that the farmers of West Bengal will be deprived of the scheme because Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has refused to identify and submit the list of beneficiaries to the central government. Centre has accused the Mamata Banerjee-led government of not becoming a part of the Prime Minister Kisan scheme claiming that the farmers of West Bengal are deprived of benefits of Rs. 4,200 crores. Mamata Banerjee on the other hand had written a letter to Agriculture Minister where she urged the minister to release funds for farmers and the money should be given to the state so they can transfer the money to rightful beneficiaries through electronic transfer mode.
