Kapilvastu: The sixth general meeting of Shivaraj Agricultural Cooperative of Kapilvastu has been concluded. The general meeting of the cooperative was held at Swargadwari Ashram in Kharendrapur on Friday.
Chairman of Shivraj Municipality Ward No. 3 Teklal Sapkota while addressing the general assembly program said that he was committed to making the ward strong in agriculture. He said that the agricultural profession should be promoted commercially to make the farmers of the ward self-reliant. Chairman Sapkota said that the cooperatives should buy the products produced by the farmers as they have done a lot of work in the agricultural sector.
He said that the city was preparing to hand over the responsibility of vegetable collection to the cooperative. He informed that the ward has various programs in the field of agriculture every year and will continue to do so in the coming days. Sapkata insisted that this was no longer possible as some were engaged in agriculture only for subsidy.
Chief of Agriculture Branch of Shivraj Municipality Tara Chandra Chaudhary said that the local level would provide subsidy on the basis of production. This year, the branch will provide grants in coordination with various agricultural cooperatives, said Chief Chaudhary.
Chairman of the cooperative Ker Singh Adai presented the annual progress report at a program held at the Swargadwari temple premises in Shivaraj Municipality-3. It is mentioned in the report of the organization that the amount is equal to 71 lakh 51 thousand 994 in 2077-78.
He said that the cooperatives have been operating the IMI as well as selling and distributing fertilizers to the farmers. He said that the cooperative has put forward plans to provide training to farmers, run vegetable collection centers, purchase fertilizer seeds and take initiative for collective farming in the current fiscal year.
