MFOI: The Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, is primed to inaugurate Krishi Jagran’s Millionaire Farmer of India, sponsored by Mahindra Tractors, which will be accompanied by the grand flag-off of the ‘MFOI Kisan Bharat Yatra 2023–24’. The event is slated to recognise and celebrate the exemplary contributions of millionaire farmers across the nation and marks a pivotal moment in acknowledging the vital role played by the agricultural community.

Nitin Gadkari's involvement in this initiative as a chief guest emphasises his integral role in supporting and enhancing agricultural practices.

“If the agricultural growth rate increases from 12 percent to 24 percent, then individuals will not move out from villages to cities," said the minister during his interaction with the founder and editor-in-chief of Krishi Jagran, MC Dominic. He further envisions the idea of establishing smart villages and transforming rural landscapes.
