GUWAHATI, May 7 - Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal held a meeting with the recently constituted economic advisory committee here today and sought recommendations and suggestions from the panel on State�s economy. The Chief Minister called on the committee to provide recommendations to streamline production-procurement-marketing chain so that a roadmap can be prepared for achieving market sustainability for the farmers.
Augmentation of cold storage and other such facilities was the need of the hour and the committee must put forward their suggestions in this regard, he said.
He urged the economic advisory committee members to devise strategies for economic resurgence by creating a model which reaches the grassroots through the panchayats.
Informing that 58 thousand SHGs in the State earned more than Rs. 900 crore by engaging in livestock business last year, Sonowal emphasised the need to rejuvenate the SHG model for rural economic resurgence.
