    PM Modi inaugurates projects related to Namami Gange in Uttarakhand | HIGHLIGHTS

    • Prime Minister Narendra Modi launches logo of Jal Jeevan Mission, via video conferencing; also launches six mega projects in Uttarakhand under Namami Gange Mission.
    • In the past decades, huge initiatives were taken up to clean river Ganga but those initiatives had neither public participation nor farsightedness. As a result, water of river Ganga was never cleaned
    • Several reforms, related to farmers, labourers & health, were brought during the recently concluded Parliament session. These reforms will strengthen labourers, youth, women, farmers of the nation. But the nation can see how some people are opposing it just for the sake of it
    • Farmers can now sell their produce to anyone, anywhere. But when centre is giving farmers their rights, these people are opposing it. They don't want farmers to sell their produce in open market, they want middlemen to earn profit. They're opposing the freedom of farmers
    • They are insulting the farmers by setting fire to the machines and equipment that is worshipped by them. For years, they said that they will implement MSP but they never did. This was done by our govt as per the recommendation of the Swaminathan Commission
    • Today these people are misleading farmers over MSP. There will not only be MSP in the country but also the freedom for farmers to sell their produce anywhere. But some people are unable to tolerate this freedom. Their one more medium to earn black income is finished
