Modi unveils crop insurance scheme in MP

Newsroom24x7 Desk

narendra-modi-mpSherpur (Madhya Pradesh): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today formally unveiled the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana at a huge farmers’ rally here.

The prime Minister described the exclusive crop insurance scheme for farmers that would protect them from recurring losses due to crop failure. The prime Minister especially chose this occasion to jab the political opponents on the issue of farmers’ welfare.

“The former Atal Behari Vajpayee government had launched a crop insurance scheme. After the Congress led United Progressive Alliance Government came to power many amendments were brought to this scheme and this led to compromising the interests of the farmers, the PM added.

The success of today’s rally is being seen as a feather in the cap of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan who obviously is emboldened by ruling BJP’s victory in the Maihar Assembly by election earlier this week

Three cities in Madhya Pradesg have been included in the national Smart City Project. Not only industries, the state has also taken big strides in the tourism sector. Recently, a hugely attractive tourist destination has been developed at Hanuwantiya in Khandwa district, the chief minister said and urged investors to visit the state to enjoy its various tourist destinations even if they do not invest in the state.
