Prime Minister Narendra Modi today released ₹ 18,000 crore to over nine crore farmer families under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) programme. With the push of a button, PM Modi enabled the transfer of money at an event that the ruling BJP has made into a big exercise amid the protest by farmers against three new farm laws.

"Some people are spreading myth and lies that land will be taken away if farmers enter into contract farming," PM Modi said, alluding to the opposition's attack that farmers won't benefit from the three new farm laws. Continuing his offensive, PM Modi turned towards West Bengal for not accepting central funds for farmers. "I am saddened that only West Bengal government is not associated with this scheme... Many farmers from Bengal have even written to the centre. It is the same Bengal government that is opposing this benefit for the farmers, but goes to Punjab and support farm protest," PM Modi said. The West Bengal assembly election is due early next year.
