PM Modi: Agriculture Plays a Key Role In Atmanirbhar Bharat

Agriculture has major role to play in Atmanirbhar Bharat: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stressed on the need for the country to be self-reliant in agriculture. He said this while inaugurating an academic and administrative building of Rani Lakshmi Bai Agriculture University in Jhansi, through video conferencing.

“A comprehensive plan to form clusters of industries is planned near villages. A special fund of Rs. 1 lakh crore has been created for these industries to get better infrastructure facilities,” Prime Minister Modi said. He added that the goal of self-sufficiency in agriculture is to make a farmer productive as well as an entrepreneur.

“When farmers and farming move forward in the form of industry, employment and self-employment opportunities are going to be created in the village and near it, on a large scale,” said Modi.

He said, “Be it drone technology, artificial intelligence technology, modern agricultural equipment, young researchers like you, young scientists, will have to work relentlessly to make it more and more useful in the country’s agriculture.” He also spoke about addressing water woes by linking rivers.

Agriculture
India’s agriculture is composed of many crops, with the foremost food staples being rice and wheat. Indian farmers also grow pulses, potatoes, sugarcane, oilseeds, and such non-food items as cotton, tea, coffee, rubber, and jute (a glossy fiber used to make burlap and twine). India is a fisheries giant as well. Unsplash

He added that the Bundelkhand area will not only prosper through agri self-reliance but also a defence corridor as well as the Bundelkhand expressway. He said it will not only create jobs but Jhansi and surrounding areas will also help India become self-reliant in the defence sector. “In a way, Bundelkhand and surrounding areas will resonate with the mantra of ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan aur Jai Vigyan’.

Union agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath were also present at the event. (IANS)
