Kisan Samman Sammelan: LS polls 'unprecedented, created history', says PM Modi on Varanasi visit

Varanasi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that the mandate given by the people of the country in the recently concluded Lok Sabha election was really 'unprecedented' and it has created a 'new history'.

Speaking after transferring the 17th installement of Rs 20,000 crore in the bank accounts of 9.26 crore farmers across the country during the Kisan Samman Sammelan, the PM, who was in his parliamentary constituency for the first time after election, said that in the democratic countries of the world it is very rare to see that an elected government returns for the third consecutive time.

PM Modi said, "This happened in India 60 years ago and now you have given this good fortune to your sevak Modi. In a country like India where the youth's aspirations are so big, where the people have so many dreams, if people give a government an opportunity to serve again after 10 years of work, then it is a very big victory and a great trust."

Modi said, "This trust of yours is my biggest asset, this trust of yours inspires me to work hard to take the country to new heights for your continuous service."

PM Modi thanked the people of Kashi for making him an MP and the PM for the third consecutive time. "IWith the blessings of Baba Vishwanath and Mother Ganga, with the immense affection of the people of Kashi, I have got the privilege of becoming the Pradhan Sevak of the country for the third time," the PM said.

Modi said, "The people of Kashi have blessed me by electing me as their representative for the third consecutive time. Now it is as if Mother Ganga has also adopted me."

On this occasion, PM Modi also presented certificates to the Krishi Didi who had come from all over the country.

The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to the people of Kashi and said that I am grateful to you, I am indebted to you. He said that more than 64 crore people of the country have voted in this election. More than 31 crore women have participated in this election. This number is close to the entire population of America. This beauty, this strength of India's democracy attracts and influences the whole world, he said.

After being sworn in as Prime Minister for the 3rd time, PM Narendra Modi signed his first file authorizing the release of the 17th instalment of PM Kisan Nidhi reflecting the commitment of the government towards farmer welfare.

The Prime Minister also granted certificates to more than 30,000 women from Self Help Groups (SHGs) as Krishi Sakhis. Krishi Sakhi Convergence Program (KSCP) aims to transform rural India through the empowerment of rural women as Krishi Sakhi, by imparting training and certification of Krishi Sakhis as Para-extension Workers.
