Former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal on Sunday said the praise of farmers from Bhoranj in Hamirpur district in ‘Man Ki Baat’ by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is proud moment for Himachal Pradesh.
Dhumal said PM Modi has lauded Bhoranj farmers for their innovative changes in farmers which had resulted in desired increase in production and income.
“It was heartening to hear the praise of farmers of the state in ‘Man Ki Baat’ as it would encourage farmers for adopting new reforms in agriculture sector,” he said, adding this would also persuade them to ensure their participation in development of the state as a whole.
He said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after coming into power in state would also support the initiatives of the farmers.
He thanked PM Modi for encouraging farmers towards new innovations and said recognising such small innovations at national level is a commendable effort.
