Zee group founder and Rajya Sabha MP,  Dr. Subhash Chandra visited Haryana's Hisar on Sunday and highlighted a series of initiatives done by the 'Subhash Chandra Foundation' for the betterment of farmers in the village. In a media conference, Dr. Chandra stated that his organization is working tirelessly to place Hisar amongst India's top 50 villages. 

He further said that his organization has invested approximately 15-18 crores in various development programs targeted at strengthening Hisar and its farmers. 

Dr. Chandra described organic farming as a "Game Changer" that is helping farmers increase their revenue. He said, "We  have conveyed the benefits of this method of farming to over 10,000 farmers, from which 800-1000 are indirectly engaged with us and over 300 are directly engaged." 

Dr. Chandra commented on the relocation of Asia's largest airport from Hisar to Jewar, saying, "It was because of lack of coordination that the airport had to be relocated from Hisar to Jewar." Otherwise, Hisar would've been a superior option." 

In October last year, Dr. Chandra launched various initiatives in the villages of Sadalpur, Adampur, and Adampur Mandi as part of the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana. 

He also initiated the Subhash Chandra Foundation's 'Krishi Kranti' program. The effort involved about 1,000 farmers who will aim towards organic agriculture. 

Chandra mentioned during the program that strengthening women, agriculture, and youth might lead to rural Swaraj. He stated that if a farmer's income is higher, he or she will be able to better the future of their children.
