Over the past decade, the government has shown improvement in this sector. In our Sankalp Patra, we have outlined a road map for farmer welfare and rural development, and we are committed to advancing these initiatives."

Quality of processing, packaging, and marketing of farm produce is crucial: Paswan

Meanwhile, Union Minister Chirag Paswan, on being made the Union Minister of Food Processing Industries, said, "Whatever responsibility has been given to me by the Prime Minister, I will fulfill it and I have been given the responsibility of such a department which I had also mentioned in my vision document." 

Paswan said, "In an agricultural country like ours, the quality of processing, packaging, and marketing of farm produce is crucial. This not only creates employment opportunities on a large scale but also holds significant importance for the future. This will not only provide employment opportunities in a large number in the country, but the future belongs to this department. Today is the time of processing, I think it has a huge scope in India and it will contribute greatly to the development of the country."
