PM’S DREAM OF A PROSPEROUS AND HEALTHY INDIA WILL COME TRUE : AMIT SHAH » Bhajpa Ki Baat
UNION HOME MINISTER INAUGURATES VARIOUS SCHEMES IN SURAT
Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of various schemes of Sumul Dairy in Surat, Gujarat on 13 March, 2022. Many dignitaries including Union Minister Smt. Darshana Jardosh and Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Bhupendra Patel were present on the occasion.
In his address on the occasion, Shri Shah said today a historic day for cooperation conference organized in Tapi District of South Gujarat. The presence and enthusiasm of a large number of people in this conference is a testament to how strong the cooperative structure is in Gujarat.
Shri Amit Shah said that this is the year of Amrit Mahotsav of the country’s Independence. 75 years have passed since India’s Independence and the 75th year of Independence is very important for any country. The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has tried to view everything from a new perspective. There is an attempt to celebrate the year of the Amrit Mahotsav of Independence as the year of making a resolve for the nation. He said that it is the year to make a resolve in every region of the country on where the country will be after 100 years of Independence. The Prime Minister has called upon 130 crore people to celebrate the year of Amrit Mahotsav of Independence as the year of making a resolution.
MIRACLE OF THE COOPERATIVE MOVEMENT
The Union Cooperation Minister said that the journey of Sumul, which started 71 years ago, began with 200 litres to 20 lakh litres today, in which milk producing tribal men and women have greatly contributed. Today, due to the hard work and dedication of tribal women, milk worth Rs. 7 crore is sold daily and arrangements have been made to transfer Rs. 7 crore directly to the bank accounts of 2.5 lakh members. Who can imagine that every day money is deposited in the bank account of a tribal women who cultivates one to two acres of land. This is the miracle of the cooperative principle, the miracle of the cooperative movement. It is a miracle of a cooperative system that has been created in Gujarat and under the aegis of Amul, by the effort and might of Shri Tribhuvan Patel.
PM Did A LOT TO MAKE AGRICULTURE SELF-RELIANT
Shri Amit Shah said that in the 75th year of independence of the country, Shri Narendra Modi has established the Ministry of Cooperation. The Prime Minister had said in 2014 that 2022 would be the 75th anniversary of Independence and we have to move forward with the goal of doubling farmers’ income by 2022. Today, I am proud to say that the Prime Minister has done a lot in that direction. To make agriculture self-reliant, the government led by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi sends Rs. 6,000 directly to the bank accounts of 13 crore farmers every year from Delhi and is trying to make farmers self-reliant.
The Ministry of Cooperation has set up several primary agricultural societies, milk producers unions, APMCs, fishermen’s brothers’ unions, trade unions, small industrial unions working in the cooperative sector. Shri Narendra Modi has worked to strengthen the cooperative movement by establishing the Ministry of Cooperation. To the men and women associated with the cooperative movement and to all the people sitting here, I want to say that Shri Modi has decided to form the Ministry of Cooperation, so let us thank him with thunderous applause.
WORKING TO PROVIDE SOFTWARE TO ALL PRIMARY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETIES
The Narendra Modi government is working to provide software to all primary agricultural societies in the coming days. With a budget of more than Rs. 900 crore, the Narendra Modi government has set up the Cooperation Department for basic facilities. If Sumul is prosperous then 2.5 lakh people will benefit and if a private dairy is strong then only five people will benefit. If the cooperative sector is strong, then the poor man will be strong, the farmer will be strong, the country’s pastoralist women will be strong.
PM LAID GREAT EMPHASIS ON NATURAL FARMING
The cooperative movement, self-reliant farming, self-reliant villages and self-reliant states and self-reliant India – are moving forward with this mantra. He said Shri Modi has laid great emphasis on natural farming, because the fertility of the soil is decreasing due to the use of chemical fertilizers. Natural farming will not only improve land fertility, people’s health will also improve and will not be affected by diseases like cancer, blood pressure, diabetes.
He said we will be fully successful in providing chemical free food grains, chemical free food, chemical free fruits, chemical free vegetables to the people. I am sure that PM Shri Modi’s dream of a prosperous and healthy India will come true.
