NE can be hub of organic farming: PM

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, June 11 - Describing the Assam oil rig fire as a disaster, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the entire Northeast can become a huge hub for organic farming.

�Organic farming can become a huge movement in the Northeast and it can dominate the global market,� the Prime Minister said while delivering the inaugural address of the 95th annual plenary session of the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) through video conference.

Modi said the government�s current cluster-based approach to local produce will provide opportunity for all. �Clusters associated with these will be developed in the districts, blocks in which they are born,� he said, adding, clusters will also be created for bamboo and organic products.

Referring to the war against the COVID-19 pandemic, the Prime Minister said India is putting up a brave front along with the entire world. The country is also facing various other problems arising out of disasters like locust attacks, hailstorms, oil rig fires, earthquakes and cyclones, but the nation is fighting these problems in unison.

The Prime Minister said that such difficult times have made India more resolute. He said determination, will power and unity are the strengths of the nation to fight all the crises. �Any crisis provides us with an opportunity to turn it into a turning point to build a self- reliant India (Aatmanirbhar Bharat),� he said.

The Prime Minister said self-reliance has been an aspiration of India for years. �Now it is time to make each village, district of the country self-reliant.� he said and called for pulling the Indian economy out of �command and control� mode and taking it towards �plug and play� mode.

He said it is time for bold decisions and bold investments, to prepare a globally competitive domestic supply chain and not for conservative approaches. �Goal of self-reliance has been paramount in the policy and practice of the country and now the corona pandemic has taught us a lesson on how to speed it up,� he added.
