He also outlined different schemes of the central government for the welfare of farmers and said, “Through Kisan Rail and Kisan Udaan Yojana, our Kisan brothers will join the national and international market and their products will be able to be sold at a better price at the right time.

“With the allocation of Rs 100 lakh crore for infrastructure in the country by the Modi government, world-class highways, railways, ports, airports, metros etc. will be built in the country, which will not only improve the lives of common people but it will also give a significant boost to economic activities, ”he said.

The Union Home Minister also talked about the simplification of the tax system and its benefits to the middle class.

“Taking forward the campaigns like home, electricity, toilets, gas and health facilities for all, I welcome PM’s resolve to provide clean drinking water to everyone.
