Here are top quotes from PM Narendra Modi's address:

  • When the country gave us the opportunity to serve as Pradhan Sevaks in 2014, we gave top priority to agricultural development and farmer welfare.
  • To overcome the challenges of the small farmers of the country, we worked all-around on seeds, insurance, markets and savings. 
  • Along with good quality seeds, the government also connected the farmers with facilities like neem coated urea, soil health card and micro-irrigation. Many steps were also taken for the farmers to get the right price for their produce in return for their hard work.
  • We worked to provide farmers with seeds at reasonable rates and facilities like micro-irrigation, 22 crore soil health cards. Such factors have contributed to increased agriculture production. We strengthened Fasal Bima Yojana, brought more farmers under it.
  • The procurement by the central government broke the record of the past several decades.
  • Our government is committed to farmers' welfare, especially small farmers. We are committed to serving them fully.
  • Haven't been able to convince farmers. Only a section of them was opposing the laws, but we kept trying to educate, inform them.
  • We tried our best to explain to farmers. We were even ready to modify the laws, suspend them too. The matter reached the Supreme Court as well.
  • We haven't been able to explain to our farmers. This is not a time to blame anyone. I want to tell you that we have taken the farm laws back. We are repealing the farm laws.
