Due Respect should be Given to the Farmers: Dr Omveer Singh

The First day of the New Year 2019 began with the great thoughts of Dr Omveer Singh, Managing Director, NDDB Dairy Services. He was the Chief Guest at Krishi Jagran head office on 2nd January 2019.

Dr. Singh appreciated the efforts and hard work of the Krishi Jagran team. He expressed hope that soon Krishi Jagran will be the number one agricultural magazine in the world.  

Being associated with the organization since 1996, he not only narrated the growth story of Krishi Jagran but also shared his enriching experience from the seed marketing company to the head backward linkages for Safal Market Bangalore, the Mother Dairy Unit to Head Agri-Business & CSR of Field Fresh Food Pvt Ltd., to CEO of Champion Agro Fresh Pvt Ltd., then as President of Vindhyachal Agroform Pvt Ltd., from 1995 to 2014.

Dr Singh also appreciated the efforts of the Chief Editor of Krishi Jagran M C Dominic who started the company from a single room at Connaught Place to a large office in South Delhi. He cautioned that the responsibility of media is more now and the contents should be authentic with simple language for the better understanding of the farming community.  

Dr Singh also emphasized that a Farmer who is the Annadata (who provides food for the entire society) should be given due respect in the society as he is the person who is more responsible for the growth of the nation. He shared numerous examples with the Krishi Jagran team with the aim to encourage and enlighten them.

If we give respect to the farmers which they actually deserve, then soon the youth of the country will start adopting the farming sector.  They will see a bright future for themselves in the agriculture sector.

We would once again like to thank Dr Singh for sharing his valuable experiences and enlightening us with his great thoughts.
