PM Modi launches PM-SURAJ portal, sanctions credit support to one lakh entrepreneurs

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Pradhan Mantri Samajik Utthan evam Rozgar Adharit Jankalyan (PM-SURAJ) portal.

On the occasion, the Prime Minister also sanctioned credit support to 1 lakh entrepreneurs from disadvantaged sections of the country.

He also distributed Ayushman Health Cards and PPE kits to Safai Mitras under the NAMASTE scheme.

"This initiative represents yet another step towards safeguarding the health and safety of frontline workers who serve in challenging conditions," the Prime Minister's office said in a statement.

The programme witnessed the participation of about 3 lakh beneficiaries of various government schemes from disadvantaged groups, who will join the program from over 500 districts across the country.

During an interaction, Prime Minister Modi took a jibe at the remarks made by RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.

"I am not different from you and I see you all as my family. When the opposition abuses me, I only remember you all. When you all are with me, then how can the opposition say that I don't have a family?"

Earlier this month, Lalu Yadav, while addressing the party's 'Jan Vishwas Maha Rally' in Patna, said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi just spreads hatred in the name of religion.

"These days he is talking about dynastic politics. You (PM Modi) don't have a family. You are not even a Hindu. When your mother died, every Hindu, as per tradition, shaves his beard and head. Why did you not shave? You only spread hatred in society," he said.
