KHARAGPUR: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Sambit Patra targetted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee over depriving the state farmers of the Central government scheme 'PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi'.

"Mamata Banerjee blocked the benefits to farmers envisioned by the central government through PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi. Farmers applied, but the state government didn't approve," Patra alleged.

"I congratulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi for announcing this from the land of West Bengal that we will implement the Kisan Samman Nidhi in the state when will come to power along with the arrears from the day it was implemented in the rest of the country," he added.

He also highlighted that the BJP would give Rs 10,000 yearly to 75 lakh farmers of West Bengal.

"Central government gives Rs 6000 per year to farmers. If we come to power, our state government will add Rs 4000 to that sum," Patra further added.
