NEW DELHI, Sep 6: The consistent efforts put in by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki to make Arunachal Pradesh a frontrunner in the spheres of development keep on bearing fruits with the Centre giving the approval for setting up of an Agriculture College in the State, besides making the State “eligible” to accrue benefits under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojna (RKVY), a centrally sponsored programme, for its farm community.
This was communicated by Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar to Tuki while the later called on him in his office here this evening.
Apart from approving the proposal for an Agriculture College at Pasighat, the Union Minister further gave the consent to strengthen and upgrade the existing ICAR-NEH, AP centre at Basar in West Siang district.
Pawar also assured to consider the proposal of a Veterinary Science College for the State in due course of time.
Besides pledging that due importance would be provided to Bamboo Mission, the Union Minister nodded for upgradation and strengthening of the Pig Rearing Centre at Karsingsa apart from modernizing the veterinary hospitals and dispensaries across the State.
In response to another plea from the Chief Minister, the Union Minister assured to send a central team to assess the feasibility of setting up of Mithun Rearing Centres in the State at the earliest possible.
“With the Centre making Arunachal eligible for RKVY, our farmers will be immensely benefited from the programme,” a seemingly happy Tuki said while extending his heartfelt gratitude to Pawar.
