Prosperous farmers. Comprehensive development.
The advent of farming was a crucial turning point in the evolution of mankind. Human society has transformed from that of a hunter-gatherer stage to that that of a permanently settled one because of agriculture.
Our food is the result of farmers’ hard work. In the earlier days farmers had to face threats only from nature. However, today apart from nature, they also have to face threats from treaties like ASEAN, multi national corporates like Monsanto and contract farming. The welfare of farmers and peasants have to be ensured. Only then can we ensure the comprehensive development of our society. The social service done by our farmers must be given its due. Tomorrow is Chingam 1 of the Kolla Varsham, i.e. Malayalam Calendar. Chingam 1 is celebrated as Farmers’ Day to recognize the services rendered by our farmers to the society.
Farmers who have made significant achievements will be honoured on this day. Revival of the agricultural sector is one of the primary goals of this government. Agricultural prosperity forms the basis for comprehensive development. Salutes to all those who toil in the soil!
