Bhaderwah, May 26: Union Minister of State Dr Jitendra Singh Thursday said that Bhaderwah is the potential destination of Agri-tech StartUps in the country.
Addressing an impressive public rally after inaugurating country’s first 'Lavender Festival' here, the Union Minister described Bhaderwah as the birthplace of India's Purple Revolution.
Dr.Jitendra Singh said that the country’s first lavender festival in Bhaderwah has been possible today only by the progressive thinking of Prime Minister NarendraModi who after taking the oath as PM in 2014 stressed that the regions which have been disconnected from the mainstream India must be connected to the mainstream through development.
Today’s Lavender Festival in the valley of Bhaderwah is the best example of development of present progressive government at the centre which should have been celebrated much earlier, Bhaderwah being the best place for lavender cultivation in terms of land and climate, he added.
Dr.Jitendra Singh also said that the development prospects of PM Modi led government for the far-flung areas like Bhaderwah can also be judged from the fact that the country’s first National Institute of High Altitude Medicine is being built in Bhaderwah which will attract scholars and researchers not only from India but across the globe generating employment opportunities for the region. The establishment of this institute is a proof of developmental initiatives reaching far flung places at an unprecedented rate compared to the last seventy years, Dr. Singh added.
The Minister said that the medical college at Doda and other distant places in J&K was not the priority of previous governments which shows that this government is leaving no stone unturned to take development to the farthest corners of the country.
Referring to the lavender cultivation in the region, Dr. Singh said that Lavender is an avenue of employment generation and research opening many paradigms of development for the region.
Dr.Jitendra Singh maintained that start-ups under purple revolution in J&K are one of the avenues under ‘Start-up India, Stand-up India’.
Dr.Jitendra Singh also said that under Lavender Cultivation, potential farmers' income has not only been doubled but quadrupled.
