"I am glad that two days ago the biggest scheme for farmers was rolled out. With the click of one button, the first instalment of Rs 2,000 has been credited to bank accounts of more than one crore farmers and work is underway to send it to the rest of beneficiaries. 50 lakh farmers from Churu are also part of this scheme. It is unfortunate though, that not a single farmer family from Churu is among the one crore beneficiaries who received the first tranche of benefits under PM-KISAN. This has happened because the Rajasthan government has not send the list of beneficiaries to the Centre yet," PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister further added that no beneficiary from Rajasthan has been reported among the 13 lakh patients who received the benefits under Ayushman Bharat scheme.

"We are acheiving targets that were not even imaginable earlier," PM Modi said.
