Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about the need to empower smallholder farmers in his speech to parliament on Monday.

“We need to strengthen small farmers and the rural economy. Our goal is to pay attention to these areas,” he said.

In addition to this, the Prime Minister also talked about the rise of start-ups. “We don’t believe that governments alone can solve all problems. We believe in the people of the nation, the youth of the nation. Take the start-up sector for example. The number of start-ups has increased and that shows the strength of before 2014 there were 500 startups in the country. Today there are 7,000,” he said.

Addressing the Lok Sabha during a discussion on the vote of thanks to the President, Prime Minister Modi attacked the Congress party and its “ecosystem”.

“Even after so many defeats, for so many decades, your [Congress party’s] arrogance is gone and your ecosystem won’t let you get rid of your arrogance,” Prime Minister Modi said.

The Prime Minister further said that if the opposition parties ‘were grounded’ they would have seen how the government has improved people’s lives with its programs on housing, water hookups and bottles gas.
