Salient Points of PM’s address after launch of development projects in Kanyakumari

India of the 21st century has to work with speed and scale, which is what the NDA Government is doing.

Just last Sunday, the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi that was announced in this year’s Budget was launched.

Under this scheme, farmers having up to five acres of land would be given a monetary support of six thousand rupees per year from the Central Government in three instalments.

Over 1.1 crore farmers have already got their first instalment directly in their bank accounts.

Can you imagine, a scheme announced on first February has become a reality in the same month itself.

We worked twenty-four hours non-stop to ensure the scheme is rolled out in twenty-four days.


Like leap years and Football world cups come once in four years, incomplete loan waivers of the Congress come just before an election.

After doing nothing for farmers, they will come at the end and say- we will waive off your loans.

In reality, Congress loan waivers benefit few farmers.

NDA government’s Kisan Samman Nidhi is not a once in a few years scheme.

Benefits will be given every year and in ten years, about 7.5 lakh crore rupees would have gone to hard-working farmers.

When a government works with speed and scale, it clearly shows.


The great sage Tiruvalluvar said “When the rare chance comes, seize it to do the rare deed.”

In 2014, it was after thirty years that a Party got a full majority in the Parliament.

The people’s message was clear- they wanted a Government that takes the lead in taking and bold and tough decisions.

People wanted honesty, not dynasty.

People wanted development, not decay.

People wanted progress, not policy paralysis.

People wanted opportunities, not obstacles.

People wanted security, not stagnation

People wanted inclusive growth, not votebank politics.
