Deputy chief minister urged to cultivate vegetables

GOA: Deputy chief minister Chandrakant Kavalekar has urged people to spare time to cultivate vegetables at least for one’s household consumption. “If everybody does this, we will not have to depend on our neighbouring states for vegetable supply. And if it results in surplus production, it will turn out to be a revolutionary trend for the state,” Kavalekar said. He made these comments during his recent visit to the farm owned by Quepem municipal council’s chairperson Dayesh Naik who has recently forayed into vegetable cultivation.

The agriculture minister pointed out that it was evident that the younger generation was steadily turning to agriculture going by the increase in the quantum of sale of vegetable seedlings by the agriculture department this year. He said that the sales figures were five times higher than those of last year. Vice chairperson of QMC Chetan Haldankar and Fatorpa zilla panchayat member Khushali Velip were among those present on the occasion.
