Will double farmers' income by 2022: PM Narendra Modi

Gujarat's interests remain at the heart of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's foreign policy, even as he has relinquished the post of Chief Minister in 2014 after he led the BJP to form government at the Centre.

He said the government has implemented the "Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Pariyojna", where people get generic medicines from stores at reasonable rates. People around started to chant Modi's name while he was in the meet with Nancy.

On Sunday evening, PM Narendera Modi landed in Surat to a grand reception by party workers, just two days after a similar roadshow was organised by the BJP ahead of its national executive in Bhubneshwar.

The Prime Minister inaugurated a Rs 500 crore hospital set up by philanthropic diamond industrialists of Surat on Monday morning. But, I have been here many times in the past.

The PM asked farmers to adopt modern farming methods like drip irrigation and said his government has made a decision to double the farmers' income by 2022. He said, that health and medical services are still costly and hard for the poor people in remote areas.

"This is not a Congress government but Modi's government". Prime Minister also emphasised on the need of preventive steps including cleanliness to improve the health of the people.

"Our nation was neither built, not can it be run by governments, kings and politicians, but only by the service and hard work of its people", he said at the public meeting.

Apart from this, the Prime Minister also visited Silvas in the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, where he addressed a gathering apart from inaugurating a few developmental projects.
