A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker has suggested that the Centre should buy mal dung from across the country as it will give a tremendous boost to orgc farming.
At a meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture here on Tuesday, a member told : "If the government starts buying mal dung all over the country, orgc farming will get a tremendous boost and the government will also be able to control stray mals. The majority of members of the committee gave their consent on the suggestion presented by a BJP lawmaker."
The Congress-led government in Chhattisgarh is running a scheme called Godhan Nyay Yojna, which has announced buying mal dung two rupees per kilogram.
The two-day meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture ended today and the demand for grants related to the Ministry of Agriculture on the budget was discussed in the meeting. Senior officials of the ministry, including the Secretary of Agriculture, were present in the meeting.
