Accusing the Congress and other parties of shedding "crocodile tears" for farmers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked why development and irrigation projects across the country were neglected during their rule. Addressing a public meeting here after inaugurating the Bansagar canal project and laying the foundation stone of the Mirzapur medical college, he said those doing politics in the name of farmers, did not have the time to think about an effective hike in minimum support prices (MSPs).  The prime minister asserted the day is not far when farmers' income would double due to his government's efforts.  Those shedding "crocodile tears" for farmers today should be asked why they did not complete irrigation projects across the nation during their tenure, Modi said.

No toxic chemicals in Kharicut canal silt, reveals lab test: AMC 1.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
According to Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) officials, laboratory testing of silt from Kharicut canal, which the civic body has been cleaning for some time, has revealed good quality of Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium (NPK) in the soil.

"Result from the agriculture laboratory says it has good NPK value. And it states that the hazardous chemicals level in it is less than the permissible limit," he added.
