Arunachal CM flags off first consignment of locally grown vegetables for Army under ‘Mission Krishi Veer’ initiative

Itanagar, Aug 16 (UNI) Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Tuesday virtually flagged off the first consignment of vegetables from SHGs and women groups for the Indian Army personnel stationed in the frontier state from three locations - Bolung in Lower Dibang Valley, Chug village in West Kameng and Gunanagar in Namsai district.
Touted as ‘Mission Krishi Veer’, the programme was announced in this year’s Budget in order to boost the state’s rural economy. Khandu had been advocating a system to supply locally produced vegetables and fruits to the troops of Army and paramilitary forces personnel stationed in Arunachal Pradesh directly from local farmers. Mission Krishi Veer is just that system now in place, a statement from the CMO said.
To begin with, an MoU has been signed between Arunachal Pradesh Marketing Board (APMB), Arunachal State Rural Livelihoods Mission (ArSRLM), and Tawang and Jang LAMPS (Large Area Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society).
