Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday addressed the sixth meeting of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog through video conferencing. It was attended by the Chief Ministers of the States, Administrators of Union Territories (UTs) and Lieutenant Governors. In this meeting, Modi’s focus was on farmers.
Modi said that even though we should be called an agricultural country, today we bring about 65-70 thousand crore rupees of edible oil from outside. We can stop this. Money can go to our farmers’ account. Our farmer is entitled to these money, but for this our plans will have to be made in that way.
The farmers of our country have no difficulty in the production of things. A little guide needs to be done and for this, there are many agricultural products that farmers can not only produce for the country, but can also supply to the world.
Modi said that in the last years, a holistic approach was adopted from agriculture to animal husbandry and fisheries. As a result, agricultural exports in the country have increased significantly during the period of Corona,
To make co-operative federalism more meaningful and not only that, we have to try to bring competitive, co-operative federalism not only among the states but also to the district.
