Panel to chart out agriculture growth map in Gujarat

By Rishi Banerji 
In a bid to give a boost to agriculture and agro-based industries in Gujarat, the state government will form a high-level committee comprising experts, researchers, progressive farmers and administrative officials. The panel will draw a blue-print for the sector for the coming years.
Chief minister Narendra Modi said, “The team will work towards bringing value addition into farming and related industries. It will also emphasise on strengthening agriculture sector in the state. This includes developing cold storages, preservation, packaging and marketing among others.”
Modi was at Nanaponda in Valsad district on Thursday to attend Krishi Mahotsava 2012 in seven districts of South Gujarat -Surat, Valsad, Navsari, Tapi, Dangs, Bharuch and Narmada. He met district’s progressive farmers, scholars, scientists and researchers.
Praising Krishi Mahotsava, the CM said that the annual agricultural fest had showed other methods of bringing revolution in agriculture and animal husbandry.
“We have been organising the mahotsava for past eight years and that too for a period of one month. No government in India has taken so much pain to change the picture of agriculture sector,” Modi added.
