[Watch] Jai Jagannath Naveen Ji: PM Modi Talks To Odisha Farmer

Bhubaneswar: As part of his outreach to farmers during the ongoing protest against the new farm laws, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with a farmer from Odisha’s Nuapada district, Naveen Thakur, on Friday.

The PM started the interaction by video conferencing by greeting the farmer: “Jai Jagannath, Naveen ji! Tell me, how has the PM-Kisan scheme benefitted you?”

On his part, Thakur appreciated the PM-Kisan scheme and shared, “I have received Rs 10,000 in five instalments through PM-Kisan and utilised it to buy fertiliser and necessary things for farming,” Thakur told the PM.

He further said, “earlier, we used to take loans at 20% interest from Sahukars, but now we are able to take loan at a nominal interest of 4% from the banks due to Kisan Credit Card.”

Thanking the PM, Thakur said the PM-Kisan scheme and Kisan Credit Card have changed his life completely.
