Country needs to create more jobs in the agriculture sector and should also ensure economic empowerment of its farmers, said Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh, while speaking at ‘Swadeshi Sangam’ meeting organised by Swadeshi Jagran Manch at Ravindra Manch.
He also stated that there was a need to promote agriculture sector and support farmers so that they can produce more food and can take advantage of growth as well can play vital roles in economy.
Singh said that poverty is nothing but a result of unemployment which can be eradicated only with efforts and not by mere giving slogans.
"Home-made products of small units in far-flung rural areas are the needs of today. Agriculture sector and farmers should be promoted, their input cost should be decreased by subsidy, and they should be given proper price of their product so that their purchase power can be increased," Singh remarked.
