Mohali: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Friday envisioned that Punjab Kisan Vikas Chamber (PKVC)-Farmers’ advisory body first of its kind in the country will be instrumental in transforming agriculture and allied activities as a profitable venture.
Addressing the gathering after inaugurating PKVC, constructed over two acres of land here in Aero City, CM said that this non-political organisation will help the sagging agrarian economy to come a stage back as this platform will prove to be a milestone in putting the views of eminent agriculture experts and economists across the state government as well as Government of India in streamlining policies related to agriculture and allied farming.
CM hoped that PKVC will go a long way in exercising its affirmative say in the policy intervention to safeguard the interests of peasantry not only in the state but also at the level of Central government especially in getting remunerative Minimum Support Price (MSP) of crops.
He further added that chamber will help the farmers and others associated with allied sectors like dairying, beekeeping, piggery, fishery, horticulture etc. to improve economic lot with the paradigm shift from ‘sustenance to disposable income’ thereby raising their economic and social status.
