Doubling of farmers’ income is an area in which significant work is being done. Schemes like soil health card are benefiting farmers,” the PM Modi said. We will take an initiative to make Shahanshahpur open-defecation free by October 2, said PM Modi. PM Modi also said that let us make India these 5 years the way our freedom fighters dreamt of.
