NAMASAI | Apr 09 | Agriculture is most important with about 80% of state population depending upon this sector to earn their livelihood, Agriculture Minister Wangki Lowang today said and called upon the farmers to adopt modern methods to boost agriculture production.
The farmers should go for multiple cropping with advanced technology, he said in his address to 37th BJP foundation day and birth anniversary celebration of Dr.BR Ambedkar here.
Hilly terrain poses challenges in using technology, like harvesting machine or large agricultural equipments but many central schemes, launched by PM Naredra Modi have been implemented while few are under processes to be implemented soon to benefit the farmer, he disclosed and added that the GoAP has taken steps to make the state organic to immensely benefit the farmers with their products getting wider markets. Stand united and work in unison to strengthen the party, he advised the BJP workers.
Highlighting the history of BJP, Planning Parliamentary Secretary Zingnu Namchoom, said that workers are important than party and urged them to disseminate information on all GoI flagship programmes at grassroots level.
