CM addresses huge gathering of Chaudhary-Gudol community at Dantiwada

Gujarat achieved record agro production despite Centre's injustice: Narendra Modi

Addressing to a huge gathering of Akhil Bhartiya Chaudhary-Gudol Samaj at Dantiwada today the Chief Minister Narendra Modi said that despite the Centre's injustice and wrongdoings to Gujarat the state has achieved record production in the field of agriculture and dairy industry.

The Central government has ruined the state of farmers and farming. It is only Gujarat that has taken a right path for the prosperity of farmers. It is only because of the toil of the farmers, the agricultural growth rate of Gujarat has touched 11%, compare to the national average which does not rise beyond 3%. The farmers of Gujarat will never forgive those who are misleading people by spreading lies, he said.

Mr. Modi said that on one hand the Congress is making uproar in Gujarat regarding cow protection, while on the other hand its Central government has imposed tax on cotton export and given subsidy to the export of mutton.

The Chief Minister said that the present government in Gujarat gives far more power subsidy compare to the past governments. This government gives a power subsidy of around Rs.3000 crore while the past governments were giving a power subsidy of Rs.500 crore to the farmers. Besides, in the past, the farmers could get hardly 15 power substations every year, whereas, this government starts 150 power substation every year and has eliminated the problem of power shortage in the field of agriculture, he said.

Challenging the Opposition over the issue of land acquisition Mr. Modi said that in the past 40 years the governments snatched the fertile land from Ankaleshwar to Vapi to make way for industrial houses. Whereas the present government has set up industries on the coastal areas and on arid lands and became instrumental for the prosperity of farmers.

On the barren region of north Gujarat a 650 MW solar plant is going to be set up, which is a sort of revolution. The Opposition government has never cared for the industries in north Gujarat and Saurashtra-Kutch region. The present government has created a lakhs of jobs through industrial development, he said.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister felicitated Parathibhai Gudol, one of the farmers from Chaudhary-Gudol community who received 87 ton/hectare production in potato farming, breaking the record of 53 ton of Netherlands, with the use of drip irrigation. The Chief Minister said the younger generation of agro-entrepreneurs in Gujarat is now taking the direction of dairy industry and drip irrigation, which is a right move towards prosperity.

The Chief Minister also urged the Chaudhary-Gudol community to give priority to girl child education.

Minister of State Parbat Patel, President of Gujarat Milk Marketing Federation, MLAs, leaders of the agriculture-cooperation field, sants-mahants and leaders of Chaudhary-Gudol community were present on the occasion.
