Prime Minister Narendra Modi today redefined what he means by the term ‘TOP’ priority of the NDA government led by him. TOP means Tomato, Onion and Potato, he said at a public rally to mark the culmination of Karnataka BJP’s ‘Parivarthana Yatra’ that crisscrossed the entire state covering all the 224 assembly constituencies. Modi said, “Those growing vegetables and fruits are among our top priority. When I say TOP, I mean whichever part of the country you go, three vegetables are very much visible –Tomato, Onion and Potato.” “That’s why I call TOP Priority. T  for Tomato, O for Onion and P for potato – that makes TOP priority.” He explained that these three TOP staples found across the country symbolised his government’s initiative called ‘Operation Greens’ to improve the living condition of farmers. Keeping these growers in mind, Operation Greens has been announced in the budget, he said.

Just as AMUL enhanced farmers’ income, Operation Greens would prove beneficial for vegetable growers, the Prime Minister said. He assured farmers that BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa would earmark Rs one lakh crore to improve the irrigation system in Karnataka if he becomes the Chief Minister after the assembly elections.
