The government’s flagship schemes including the ambitious Ujjwala Yojana and those related to solar power are helping empower the poor and the small farmers in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his Independence Day speech today.
“In the past seven years, many government schemes have benefitted crores of Indians. From Ujjwala to Ayushman Bharat, the poor today knows the strength of these schemes. Today, solar power schemes are being taken to the farms. These things will strengthen the small farmers,” he said.
Modi said the government has ensured that all the deserving people are connected with key schemes focused on road connectivity for villages, and bank accounts, ayushman bharat card and gas connections under the Ujjwala scheme, apart from insurance and pension schemes.
