Pradhan made this request on the occasion of distribution of PM-Kissan assistance among poor farmers across the country. He expressed unhappiness that all enlisted farmers of Odisha didn’t get the Central assistance due to faulty management of the State Government.
“The Modi Government has been providing all support to farmers. Under the PM-Kissan Samman Nidhi scheme, Odisha farmers have got eight installments of Rs 2,000 each. As such, Odisha famers have received a total of Rs 3,830.85 crore so far,” said Pradhan.
Informing that 27,83,209 farmers of Odisha received a total of Rs 556.64 crore in the 8th installment of the PM-Kissan today, Pradhan requested the Chief Minister to see that all 40,50,103 enlisted farmers get the Central assistance.
A total of 24,70,671 farmers from Odisha had received a total of Rs 494.13 crore as the 7th installment of the PM Kissan Samman Nidhi assistance, he said.
