IEP Chandigarh, March 14
On the initiative of Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister, Sh. JP Dalal, made the festival of colours, Holi, auspicious for the farmers and livestock owners by organizing the Haryana Krishi Vikas Mela and the State Livestock Exhibition simultaneously for the first time. The events focused on harnessing the rural economy and taking the farmers and villages towards prosperity.
As Finance Minister, Chief Minister Sh. Manohar Lal has focused on making villages prosperous in his 2023-2024 budget speech. The ‘Haryana Krishi Vikas Mela’ was organized at Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, from March 10 to 12, 2023; where farmers not only from Haryana but also from neighbouring states registered their presence. During the Krishi Vikas Mela, agricultural scientists gave information about new varieties and techniques of crops being developed on the changes coming in the crop cycle due to climate change.
On the other hand, at the State Level Livestock Exhibition organized at Charkhi Dadri from March 11 to 13, 2023, best breeds of livestock were showcased and the scientists of Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Hisar, gave important information related to livestock. Notably, after the formation of Haryana in the year 1966, this was probably the first time when agriculture and livestock exhibitions were organized simultaneously in the state.
At both the programmes, the Chief Minister interacted with the people and informed about the future plans for harnessing the rural economy in the Union budget as well as the state budget. The Chief Minister also listened to the grievances of the people during the Jan Samvad programme at both the places; which garnered appreciation from the people.
The Jan Samvad programme is an initiative of the Manohar Lal-led state government to ease the lives of the citizens by ensuring quick redressal of their grievances. So far, the Jan Samvad programmes have been organized in Rohtak, Sirsa, Sonipat and Karnal.
