India’s PM Modi Assumes Office for Consecutive Third Term, Prioritizes Farmer Welfare

India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, commenced his third consecutive term in office with a strong emphasis on farmer welfare. Assuming office at the South Block in the national capital on Monday (June 10), PM Modi promptly authorized the release of the 17th installment of PM Kisan Nidhi, benefiting 9.3 crore farmers with nearly Rs 20,000 crores.

In his statement after signing the file, PM Modi reiterated his government’s unwavering commitment to the well-being of farmers, stating, “Ours is a Government fully committed to Kisan Kalyan. It is therefore fitting that the first file signed on taking charge is related to farmer welfare. We want to keep working even more for the farmers and the agriculture sector in the times to come.”

The prime minister, along with 72 Council of Ministers, took the oath of office in a grand ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday (June 9). With immediate priorities on his agenda, PM Modi aims to convene a Cabinet meeting shortly. Additionally, a formal request will be made to President Droupadi Murmu by the Cabinet for summoning a session of Parliament.

The upcoming Parliament session is expected to witness the president addressing both houses, outlining the government’s vision and setting priorities for its third term. Among the anticipated announcements is the allocation of two crore houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) housing scheme, highlighting the government’s continued focus on inclusive development.

As India navigates through this crucial phase of governance, PM Modi’s reiteration of commitment towards farmer welfare underscores the significance of agricultural reforms and rural development in the nation’s growth trajectory.
