Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi inaugurates and lays foundation stone of multiple projects worth more than Rs. 1,000 crores (US$ 125.58 million) at Sabar Dairy in Sabarkantha

Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi on July 28 inaugurated and laid the foundation stones of multiple projects worth more than Rs. 1,000 crore (US$ 125.58 million) at Sabar Dairy at Gadhoda Chowki, Sabarkantha, Gujarat.

These initiatives will boost local farmers' and milk producers' livelihoods. The local rural economy will benefit from this as well. The Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme recipients and top female milk producers received congratulations from the Prime Minister. He also discussed ways to support animal husbandry through the provision of fodder, medications, and the promotion of Ayurvedic care for cattle. He referred to the Gujarat Jyotigram Scheme as a development-stimulating programme.

He claimed that the plan to give farmers alternative sources of income was working. The farming community now made a solid living from horticulture, fishing, and honey production. In this sector, villages saw the creation of more than 1.5 crore new jobs. New opportunities for farmers are being opened up by policies like boosting the proportion of ethanol in petrol.

The Prime Minister claimed that actions like neem-coating urea, opening shuttered fertiliser facilities, pushing nano fertilisers, and guaranteeing urea availability at reasonable costs despite a rise in the price of urea globally have benefited Gujarati farmers, as well as those across the nation.
