Manipur Agriculture Minister Th Biswajit on Wednesday, while appealing to the public to resist constructions of structures in the paddy field by defying the Conservation of Paddy Land and WetLand Act, 2014, also warned of legal action against those violators.
Speaking at his office chamber at New Secretariat in Imphal West, Biswajit said that Prime Minister Modi has given certain action plans and parameters to all state governments for overall strengthening of the country during a quarterly review meeting with the CMs.
He said that in order to eradicate poverty, maximum benefits are made available to the farmers by ways of introducing schemes such as KCC, Soil Health Card, PM Kishan Samman Nidhi and others.
The government is also trying to introduce nano fertiliser and give focus on natural and organic farming by ways of intervening with technologies, he informed.
Stating that increasing the socio-economy of the state by doubling the income of the farmers is the main objective, he stressed the need to save and preserve paddy lands.
Highlighting the New India vision of a USD five trillion economy, he said that the government will organise competitions in all districts with 'one district one product' to boost productivity by ways of giving all sorts of logistic support.
