The Prime Minister's direction came when he was addressing the nation after launching the eighth instalment of financial benefits worth Rs 19,000 crore under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme to benefit more than 9.5 crore farmers that include first-time beneficiaries in West Bengal.

The Prime Minister expressed dissatisfaction against these hoarders for their indulgence in such acts at a time when even the Indian Armed forces comprising all its three divisions have been engaged to serve the human being amid the Covid-19 crisis.
