Bhatinda: Expressing his concern over woes of farmers of India and at the same time attacking the Pakistan for regular ceasefire violations, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Punjab that the fields of our farmers must have adequate water.

PM Modi also reminded the neighbour about their hard times and said that Pakistan regularly shells mortars, kills our soldiers but when school in Peshawar was attacked every Indian was teary-eyed.
