Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday made it clear that a decision on bringing an ordinance on Ram Temple at Ayodhya can be taken after the judicial process is complete. In an interview to a news agency, he accused Congress of delaying the Ayodhya verdict in the Supreme Court. Mr Modi said Congress lawyers are creating hurdles in the apex court so that an early judgment is not delivered.
When asked about farm loan waivers, Mr Modi said it is not the ideal solution to their debts. He stated that a majority of farmers who commit suicides are those who take loans from moneylenders. Mr Modi alleged that Congress is misleading the nation by announcing farm loan waivers in the states governed by the party.
He said Congress governments have not waived loans of all the farmers as it had promised. The Prime Minister said his government is making sincere efforts to improve the lives of farmers. He said the government is also taking steps to provide farmers with facilities, such as cold storage, warehousing, value chain addition so that they get most of their yield.
The Prime Minister also talked about measures to benefit middle-class people. He said his government has brought inflation down to about 2 per cent, unveiled Ayushman Bharat, mudra yojana, UDAAN and start-up schemes for the convenience of the middle class.
