Agriculture Minister holds meeting with Ministry officials

New Delhi, April 13 (IANS) Union Minister for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar on Monday held a meeting with Ministry officials at his office here on harvest operations across the country and other farmer-related issues.

Ministers of State Purshottam Rupala and Kailash Chaudhary, Secretary Sanjay Agarwal and other senior ministry officials also attended the meeting, during which the impending harvest of Rabi crops in many states and the procurement process were discussed.

The Minister directed officials to oversee the implementation of the directives issued by the central government in this regard.

Though the sowing and harvest of crops during the lockdown has been allowed, the process has been hampered due to unavailability of farm labour.

Even the procurement process has been hit, and is likely to resume after April 15 in some states.
