Kicking off the Krishi Mahotsav and cattle health fair at Diyodar village of Banaskantha district today the Chief Minister said that Centre’s criminal negligence towards agriculture sector, which is the mainstay of Indian economy, has ruined the villages, farmers and farming. “The present rulers at Centre have crushed the dreams nurtured by Lalbahadur Shastri, Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi for the prosperity and uplifting of villages and agriculture”, he said.

 

A large number of farmers and cattle-breeders including rural women from the five districts of north Gujarat thronged the Diyodar village to partake in the eighth edition of the month-long Krishi Mahotsav that began from May 6 this year.

The Krishi Mahotsav has helped the farmers of north Gujarat to the crops like cultivate pomegranate and sugar-free potatoes along with the traditional crops. Even the farmers who have small portion of land have started earning lakhs of rupees by constructing greenhouse net, he said.

Chief Minister said the state government desires to boost the income levels of farmers by doing value-additions in the crops and by ensuring that the farmers get high price for their produce. “We want to put before the world an exemplary model for agricultural development”, he said.

 

Speaking on the occasion Agriculture Minister Dilip Sanghai said the state government organizes Krishi Mahotsav with a view to acquaint farmers with the latest research and modern methods of farming, marketing structure, value-addition etc. The programme has helped to raise the income of farmers and brought about a revolutionary change in agriculture scenario in Gujarat, he said.

I salute each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive.

Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

India’s approach to fighting the pandemic will always remain science based. We are also augmenting health infrastructure to ensure our fellow citizens get proper care.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
