Cabinet meeting gives nod for cooperative farming

Bill to be introduced in the State Assembly


The State Cabinet on Tuesday gave its approval for implementing cooperative farming, a move proposed by the Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy to increase productivity and improve the income of the farmers. A unanimous resolution was adopted at a Cabinet meeting after the Chief Minister explained the merits of cooperative farming to Ministers who in turn, appreciated the novel idea and complimented him for his bold initiative.

The issue of cooperative farming dominated the meeting with several Ministers expressing their opinions and the Chief Minister responding them. Briefing media later, information and Public Relations Minister, J Geetha Reddy said that the experiment would be yet another flagship programme of the Rajasekhara Reddy government. A Bill would be introduced in the Assembly next month to provide legislative backing to the pilot project.

The experiment would cover on an average only two villages in each district. The participation of individual farmers would be voluntary and there would not be any coercion. She said on merging their holdings cooperative, individual farmers would not lose their ownership rights. She said that there would not be any interference by outsiders in the experiment. The entire project would be implemented by farmers' committee under the guidance of scientists.
