Chandigarh, 30 September (Trinew)
INLD’s National Principal General Secretary Abhay Singh Chautala has expressed condolence on the demise of Dr. MS Swaminathan, the scientist who brought about revolutionary changes in agriculture and the architect of the Green Revolution. He said that Dr. Swaminathan had a calm nature, amazing energy and a gentle personality. Among the plans he made, the main ones were the use of high yielding seeds, chemical fertilizers, organic and terraced farming and the contribution of women of the areas in agriculture. Abhay said that if there is anyone who is the real deserver of Bharat Ratna, it is Dr. Swaminathan. He said that INLD demands that he should be honored with the title of Bharat Ratna. Dr. MS Swaminathan’s words on agriculture will always be relevant that ‘no matter how much technological progress we make, he believes that the future belongs to those countries which have grains, not guns. You can buy guns but you can’t buy grains’.
