As per an Indiatoday report, "Jayapur village in Varanasi, the village adopted by PM Modi under MP's Model Village Scheme, are unhappy over being ignored despite so much hype over being a Modi-adopted village.

Most shockingly however the reality is far removed from the wishful thinking of farmers in Jayapur.

Farmers here who largely depend on wheat, mustard, potato and seasonal vegetables for their livelihood in rabi season are devastated due to 70-80 per cent losses in their produce. And what is worse is that no help is forthcoming."
