New Delhi: Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar has said that agriculture and agriculture-related industries are the source of India’s economic growth.
The 61st convocation ceremony of the Indian Agricultural Research Institute was held today (February 24) in New Delhi. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, State Agriculture Minister Kailash Chaudhary, Chairman of Indian Agricultural Research Institute Himanshu Pathak and others participated in the ceremony which was presided over by Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar.
Speaking on the occasion, Jagdeep Dhankar said: “In September last year, India emerged as the 5th largest economy in the world. It is not that easy. This is the most important achievement of the country. The role of agriculture has been very important in the country achieving this feat. Agriculture is the backbone of the country’s economy. India’s rise as one of the world’s largest economies is largely due to agriculture and tourism-related industries. Many people are surprised to see India now.
No one can stop India’s growth. India is a great place to invest and get opportunities. Such an environment has developed due to the formulation and implementation of solid policies.
In 10 years India will become the 3rd largest economy in the world. Considering that the country is about to enter the centenary of independence in the coming year 2047, the youth should create the foundation for it. A new revolution can be created by adding value to agricultural products,” Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar said.
