THE Government is focusing on technology and developing infrastructure in the farm sector, which would create job opportunities in villages for educated youth, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said on Tuesday. Besides creating job opportunities, it will also benefit farmers and help find a permanent solution to make farmers prosperous and modernise agriculture, he said, while delivering the concluding episode of a series of lectures organised by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
The series, which started on March 17 2021, had a total 75 lectures on various topics delivered by experts, eminent scientists, policymakers, spiritual leaders, motivational speakers and successful entrepreneurs, an official statement said.
Tomar, in his lecture, said the Centre has launched several schemes to ensure the farm sector gets full support, and the work is going on with the cooperation of the state governments.
He also mentioned that Indian agriculture should emerge as the world leader by Azadi Ka Amrit Kaal (Centenary Year of Indian Independence). “The Government is working to increase the application of technology in the agriculture sector and develop infrastructure in each village, which will create employment opportunities in the agriculture sector and attract the educated youth in the villages,” he said.
