Jaipur (Rajasthan) February 8 (ANI): Addressing a meeting with a delegation of farmers, cattle-breeders, dairy union and representatives of tribal areas during a pre-budget dialogue through video conference, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that these communities are an important part of the state's economy. The Chief Minister said that despite the difficult geographical conditions and lack of water, the farmers have made a meaningful effort to keep the state at the forefront in the field of agriculture with their hard work. It is our endeavour to make such provisions in the budget, so that the income of farmers and cattle breeders of the state would increase. During the meeting, the CM underlined that there is great potential for agriculture and dairy development in Rajasthan. These areas can be developed rapidly through technology and innovations. The suggestions of progressive farmers and cattle breeders will be important in this. The Chief Minister said that the welfare of farmers and cattle breeders is one of the top priorities of our government. For this, we have taken many important decisions in the last two years, which are bringing positive changes in the field of agriculture. The CM Gehlot also said that to create a conducive environment for the development of agricultural industries and to promote agricultural exports, the State Government has implemented the 'Rajasthan Agro Processing, Agribusiness and Agri Export Promotion Policy-2019'. Farmers should take advantage of these policies and move towards agricultural industries and exports. The state government will provide all possible support to them.
