CM inaugurates cattle-feed factory and dairy technology institute of Dudhsagar dairy

CM pays tribute to late Dr.Verghese Kurien

CM called upon to set up gobar-bank and animal hostel in every village

 

Chief Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a cattle-feed factory and ‘Mansinhbhai Institute of Dairy and Food Technology’, set up by Mahesana’s Dudhsagar Dairy, today at Jagudan area. He stressed the usage of scientific methods in cattle-rearing and called upon to set up gobar-bank and animal hostel in every village.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister observed silence to pay heartfelt tributes to late Dr.Verghese Kurien, originator of the white revolution, on his shocking demise. He said that Dr. Kurien worked devotedly for six decades in the field of milk production, co-operative sector, value addition in dairy industry and cattle-rearing for earning a name to India. Though he did not take birth in Gujarat, he created a place in the hearts of Gujaratis.

Speaking to a large number of farmers on the occasion the Chief Minister said that unfortunately the cattle-rearing sector has been neglected in India. “Milk productivity per animal in India is lower comparing to other parts of the world. This is the reason why the cattle-breeders in India have not become prosperous.” Gujarat has encouraged scientific cattle-rearing and as a result has seen 68% increase in milk production during last decade, he said.

Speaking about the state’s initiatives in the field of cattle-rearing Mr. Modi said, “Shaurashtra did not have cattle-feed factories and there was a shortage of cattle-feed at cheaper rates. The state government has come up with a Rs.30 crore scheme for setting up of a cattle-feed factory in co-operative sector.” The government has also set up Kamdhenu University to create a pool of manpower for scientific cattle-rearing in Gujarat. “We examined and treated lakhs of animals by organizing around 112 cattle health fairs”, he added. He asked the farmers to start a campaign for desilting of dams, lakes and other water-conservation bodies with a view to make available water during difficult times and for the cultivation of fodder. He also asked them to go for scientific experiments for increased milk production and cattle-rearing.

Chief Minister congratulated the Dudhsagar dairy for setting up of the dairy and food technology institute. He said the institute will cause benefit to lakhs of cattle-breeders. “cattle-feed will be produced and will be available at cheaper rates”, The Dudhsagar dairy, founded by Mansinhbhai has become instrumental in bringing prosperity to lakhs of cattle-rearing farmers, said the Chief Minister. Chairman of Dudhsagar Dairy Vipul Chaudhary said this factory is the biggest in the country and will produce 10 lakh kilo of cattle-feed per day.

Revenue Minister Anandiben Patel, MP Jayshriben Patel, MLAs Rushikesh Patel, Kanti Patel, Anil Patel, Bharatsinh Dabhi, Narayan Patel, Sabar Dairy Chairman Jethabhai and President of Visnagar market yard Prahladbhai among others was also present on the occasion.

Namaste!

It is a delight to address this young and energetic gathering. In front of me is a global family, with all the beautiful diversity of our planet.

The Global Citizen Movement uses music and creativity to bring the world together. Music, like sports, has an inherent ability to unite. The great Henry David Thoreau once said, and I quote: "When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am in-vulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest of times, and to the latest."

Music has a calming impact on our life. It calms the mind and the entire body. India is home to many musical traditions. In every state, in every region, there are many different styles of music. I invite you all to come to India and discover our musical vibrancy anddiversity.

Friends,

For almost two years now, humanity is battling a once in a lifetime global pandemic. Our shared experience of fighting the pandemic has taught us we are stronger and better when we are together. We saw glimpses of this collective spirit when our COVID-19 warriors, doctors, nurses, medical staff gave their best in fighting the pandemic. We saw this spirit in our scientists and innovators, who created new vaccines in record time. Generations will remember the manner in which human resilience prevailed over everything else.

Friends,

In addition to COVID, other challenges remain. Among the most persistent of the challenges is poverty. Poverty cannot be fought by making the poor more dependent on governments. Poverty can be fought when the poor start seeing governments as trusted partners. Trusted partners who will give them the enabling infrastructure to forever break the vicious circle of poverty.

Friends,

When power is used to empower the poor, they get the strength to fight poverty. And therefore, our efforts include banking the unbanked, providing social security coverage to millions, giving free and quality healthcare to 500 million Indians. It would make you happy that about 30 million houses have been built for the homeless in our cities and villages. A house is not only about shelter. A roof over the head gives people dignity. Another mass movement taking place in India is to providedrinking water connection to every household.The Government is spending over a trillion dollars for next-generation infrastructure.For several months last year and now, free food grains have been provided to 800 millions of our citizens.These, and several other efforts will give strength to the fight against poverty.

Friends,

The threat of climate change is looming large before us.The world will have to accept that the any change in the global environment first begins with the self. The simplest and most successful way to mitigate climate change is to lead lifestyles that are in harmony with nature.

The great Mahatma Gandhi is widely known for his thoughts on peace and non-violence. But, do you know that he is also among the greatest environmentalists of the world. He led a zero carbon footprints lifestyle. In whatever he did, he put the welfare of our planet above everything else.He highlighted the doctrine of trusteeship, where we all are trustees of the planet with the duty of caring for it.

Today, India is the only G-20 nation that is on track with its Paris commitments. India is also proud to have brought the world together under the banner of the International Solar Alliance and the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure.

Friends,

We believe in the development of India for the development of humankind.I want to conclude by quoting the Rig Veda, which is perhaps one of the world's oldest scriptures.Its verses are still the golden standard in nurturing global citizens.

The Rig Veda says:

संगच्छध्वंसंवदध्वंसंवोमनांसिजानताम्

देवाभागंयथापूर्वेसञ्जानानाउपासते||

समानोमन्त्रःसमितिःसमानीसमानंमनःसहचित्तमेषाम्।

समानंमन्त्रम्अभिमन्त्रयेवःसमानेनवोहविषाजुहोमि।।

समानीवआकूति: समानाहृदयानिव: |

समानमस्तुवोमनोयथाव: सुसहासति||

It means:

Let us move forward together, speaking in one voice;

Let our minds be in agreement and let us share what we have, like the Gods share with each other.

Let us have a shared purpose and shared minds. Let us pray for such unity.

Let us have shared intentions and aspirations that unify us all.

Friends,

what can be a better manifesto for a global citizen than this?May we keep working together

for a kind, just and inclusive planet.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Namaste.
