The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) organized the Seventh National Conference of Agrivision on the theme "Self-reliant Agriculture - Self-Reliant India" on Saturday.

The Union Agriculture Minister, Narendra Singh Tomar, addressed the conference and appreciated efforts made by students and farmers working in the field of agriculture.

He also passed prominent proposals related to agriculture.

Narendra Singh Tomar during the conference, said, “If a farmer feeds us, then why can't we call him a rich, prosperous, or anna (food) giving farmer? We rather call him poor. It should add to their prestige. Agriculture is the backbone of our country. Our farmers and scientists who are working in the agriculture sector deserve appreciation and should always be encouraged.”

He added that in this regard, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also tried to connect this sector with many new dimensions by prioritising agriculture. Its success is being reflected in us today. More money can be made in other sources of livelihood but works in fields to feed 140 crore people across the nation."

Shubham Singh Patel, National Convenor of Agrivision said, “Agrivision is constantly working towards the betterment of the agriculture sector. There is a need to improvise the agriculture sector with new technology so that this sector can develop into a profitable one.”

In addition to this, under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme, about 2.5 lakh crore rupees have been deposited by the central government in the bank accounts of crores of farmers with complete transparency so far. The scheme created 10,000 Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) in the country and is being implemented for Rs 6,865 crores. The Kisan Credit Card (KCC) scheme has approached as a boon for small farmers, under which short-term loans of about Rs 20 lakh crore have been given to them.
