The government has launched numerous schemes to help you prosper, and I encourage everyone to take full advantage of these opportunities to increase your income in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision. Last year, from December 6th to 8th, we organized the grand Millionaire Farmer of India Award Show at Pusa Mela Ground in Delhi, where over one thousand millionaire farmers (with annual incomes exceeding Rs 10 lakh) from across the country participated. These farmers were honored with awards at three levels: district, state, and national. I urge the farmers of Gorakhpur to nominate themselves and participate in this year's 'Millionaire Farmer of India Award,' so they can gain recognition not only at the district and state levels but also nationally."
