PM inaugurates Cattle Feed Plant, launches Irrigation & Water Supply schemes in Gujarat

PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the SUMUL cattle feed plant at Bajipura in southern Gujarat. He also laid the Foundation Stone for three Lift Irrigation Schemes, and inaugurated the Drinking Water Supply Scheme for Vyara Town and Jesinhpur- Dolvan Groups of Tapi district in Gujrat. Addressing a large gathering, the Prime Minister recalled having worked in this area for a long time. He said SUMUL – the Surat District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Limited – has empowered several people in the nearby areas. He said the stretch from Umbergaon to Ambaji has been transformed and this has benefited the tribal communities of Gujarat. Here, in SUMUL we see the positive results that can be achieved when Sahkar (Cooperatives) and Sarkar (Government) work together, the Prime Minister said. He said SUMUL also illustrates the good that happens when farmers and dairies work closely. The PM expressed happiness to see remarkable progress in the region and called for value addition in the agriculture sector, and focus on increasing per capita milk production
