NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday stressed on the importance of bringing a change through technology in this changing era.

“If we set up an arrangement through which farmer can get as much water as they want and anytime they want, they can grow gold out of soil. But this is also true that we will have to bring change through way of technology in this changing era. For Example you have 20 acres of land, if you grow sugarcane on 15 acres; you should at least keep five acres for experimenting,” said Prime Minister Modi, while addressing a delegation of sugarcane farmers in the national capital.

The Prime Minister further said that it was crucial for farmers to have bank accounts under the Jan Dhan Yojana.

“Soil health card will help farmers know about health of their land, so they can figure out which crop is more suitable for them to grow. Farmers must have bank accounts under Jan Dhan Yojana and the money will directly be deposited in their accounts,” he said.

“I want my farmers, my villages to be empowered and independent, and this is all possible, we are working in this direction,” he added.
