The Congress Tuesday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the “recycling” of the headlines before the release of the 17th installment of PM-KISAN, saying it is not some “prasad” being bestowed on farmers but it’s their legitimate right.


Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said as soon as the “one-third Pradhan Mantri” assumed office on 9th June, headlines screamed that the very first file he signed was to release the 17th instalment of PM-KISAN.

“Today again the headlines scream that the ‘one-third’ Pradhan Mantri will release the 17th instalment of PM Kisan. This is how headlines keep getting recycled,” Ramesh said in a post on X.

Modi will visit his constituency Varanasi, for the first time after assuming office for the third term, to participate in the PM-Kisan Samman Sammelan. He will release Rs 20,000 crore for over 9.26 crore farmers, continuing his commitment to the income support scheme, according to an official statement.
