Tripura Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha on Tuesday said that the state government has initiated the computerization of all 268 LAMPs and PACs in the state.
He emphasized that ‘Ek Tripura Shrestha Tripura, Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat’ will only be achievable when the economy of rural areas prospers.
“Cooperative societies play a significant role in ensuring progress. Rural economy will prosper only through the cooperative movement. More awareness should be raised among the people to propel the cooperative sector forward. After Home Minister Amit Shah took charge as the Union Minister of Cooperation, the cooperative sector is moving towards further development. ‘Ek Tripura Shrestha Tripura, Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat’ will be possible only on the day when the economy of the rural areas will prosper,” said Dr. Saha during the observance of the 70th Cooperative Week at Agartala Town Hall.
The event was organized under the initiative of the Cooperative Department and Tripura State Cooperative Union.
He mentioned that the Department of Co-operation has taken special initiatives for the development of the cooperative sector in the next five years.
“Without sincerity, transparency, honesty, and enthusiasm among those associated with LAMPs, PACs, and the Cooperative Movement, this week's celebration will not be a success. One of the objectives of the Ministry of Cooperatives is to bring benefits to the people at the grassroots level. This will make the economy more prosperous. Under the leadership of Union Department of Co-operation Minister Amit Shah, several ideas have been put in place to take the cooperative sector forward. These include making India free from poverty, keeping the country free from corruption, getting rid of extremism, and establishing good governance through the proper use of new technologies.” he said.
The Chief Minister also informed that the central government has decided to open the world's largest grain storage in the country, and for this, 11 districts of the country have been identified. Among them, Khilpara of Gomati district of the state has been allocated Rs 1.86 crore for the implementation of this project.
Cooperatives Minister Shuklacharan Noatia, Mayor of Agartala Municipal Corporation Dipak Majumder, Tripura State Cooperative Union Chairman MLA Mailafru Mog, and others were present.
