Amit Shah, Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation, addressed the National Symposium on ‘Promotion of Organic Products through Cooperatives’ organised by National Cooperative Organics Limited (NCOL) as the Chief Guest in New Delhi. Amit Shah launched the logo, website and brochure of NCOL and also distributed membership certificates to NCOL members. On this occasion, many dignitaries including Union Minister of State for Cooperation B.L. Verma, Secretary, Ministry of Cooperation and Chairman, NCOL were present.
In his address, Amit Shah said that natural farming is one of the many goals set by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the year of Amrit Mahotsav for building a self-reliant India. To achieve this goal, we have to work on many fronts and move ahead by coordinating between them. He said that the goal of taking natural farming above 50 per cent in India cannot be achieved without a multidimensional approach and these three works completed today are very important to achieve this goal. He said that it is a matter of great satisfaction for India that today we are not only self-reliant in the field of agricultural produce but are also surplus and we have to assess this journey. Shah said that the bad consequences of excessive use of fertilisers and pesticides to increase production have started appearing before us today. Their excessive use has not only reduced fertility, polluted the land and water but has also given many diseases. He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called upon farmers across the country to adopt natural farming. He said that in the last 5-6 years, lakhs of farmers in the country have adopted natural farming and the number of such farmers is gradually increasing.
