“Since 1947 various missions were launched for agriculture development and farmers’ growth but practically no Govt did much for the farmers till Narendra Modi became Prime Minister of India. His Swachh Bharat doesn’t mean only to clean areas but also means to clean the administration from corruption”, said CM.
