Outsourcing Agriculture! Now India it seems, does not have place to grow pulses for its own people. ... See MoreSee Less
Achche Din indeed! Now India it seems, does not have place to grow pulses for its own people. Result - outsource agriculture!
I do not know whether to call this shortsightedness, stupidity or plain apathy for the nation. Our nation is one of the oldest agricultural civilizations in the world and now, we are outsourcing pulse cultivation to Brazil. Is this a government that even cares for the people? Is this a government that is even bothered about our farmers? Where are the real Achche Din Like the days of economic liberalization under Dr. Manmohan Singh, or the days of Rajiv Gandhi which saw the coming of the National Education Policy that gave us modern schooling?
A nation that cannot feed itself by growing its own food will lose the respect of its own people and all the world. I only hope better sense prevails and this disastrous move is stopped. We the Congress will do all in our power to protect the Indian farmer.

#visionkarnataka #kpcc First Meeting of Vision Group (Industries) held Under the Chairmanship of Hon’ble Chief Minister, Government of Karnataka
Bengaluru August 20th, 2016: The first meeting of Vision Group for Industrial Development of Karnataka was held under the Chairmanship of Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka today. At the meeting, Hon’ble Chief Minister discussed necessary measures to guide the further Industrialisation of Karnataka State with members of the vision group. The meeting was initiated by opening remarks from Hon’ble Minister for LMI and Infrastructure Development, RV Deshpande. In his remarks the initiatives of the State for Ease of Doing Business and several policy initiatives of the Govt. were highlighted.
The members of the committee especially industry members deliberated on action points to be initiated for effective and progressive industrialisation of the state.
• Chief Minister in his concluding remark stated that his Government is committed for promotion of industry & service sector considering the significance of these sectors in providing ample employment opportunities to our people and creating wealth to the State. Ultimately, our commitment is to empower the citizens and improve their quality of life. • He said that he always believes in inclusive approach in development and governance. As a strategy to best utilise the collective wisdom, he has constituted this Vision Group. • He also mentioned that, Karnataka is one of the leading and progressive States in the country and the credit should go to the entire industry fraternity. The State Governments, irrespective of the political party in power, have been supporting and nurturing industrial development in the State for several decades. • Bengaluru is facing infrastructure problem and it is really a challenge to bridge the gap between growth of industry and the quality infrastructure in the City. • His Government is not keeping quiet and doing best to add sheen to the charisma of “Brand Bengaluru” by achieving effective convergence of the grants given to Bengaluru through different institutions. His Government, since 2013-14, has provided Rs. 5,606 Crore for the BBMP for creating and upgrading infrastructure. To give further fillip to the city, in the current budget, Rs. 5000 Crore has been made available under Chief Minister’s special package for creating various infrastructure facilities. • Karnataka has a significant pool of qualified and highly skilled people presently engaged in innovative activities. This talent pool has to be leveraged to drive the innovation agenda. To enable youth to acquire necessary skill and expertise for employment, the Karnataka Budget 2016-17 proposed to create Skill Development and Livelihood Department with an exclusive objective of enhancing employment generation and bringing all skill development programmes under one department. This will enhance skill development in mission mode and ensure coordination among various departments. It is also proposed to create a separate Ministry for skill development in the State. • Infrastructure is the backbone for industrial development and hence, the Government is giving top priority for creation of comprehensive infrastructure facilities across the State. His Government is pushing investments to tier-II and III cities in order to develop these potential cities. All the required infrastructure facilities would be created to attract investors to such locations. • His Government also initiated some major industrial infrastructure projects like CBCIC, BMECP, NIMZ, Machine Tool Park, Japanese Industrial Park, etc., are in progress and the Government is keen to complete these projects within the stipulated time frame. • Due to inherent advantages of the State and also progressive policy & programmes supported by pro-active mind set of governance, Karnataka is leading the economic growth of the country. Karnataka has been recognised as most progressive and forward looking State in the country. • Karnataka has been considered as undisputed investment destination both for domestic and overseas investors. His Government organised Invest Karnataka 2016 during February 2016 and the investment proposals approved during this event is clear indication for the preference of investors towards Karnataka. Subsequent to Invest Karnataka – 2016, several prestigious projects have been approved by the SHLCC, which will generate substantial investments. • He stated that his responsibility has increased now due to which his Government is more committed to see that all these investment intensions are materialised within the specified time. For this, State has streamlined procedures for investors through its single window mechanism for doing the business with ease. • As envisaged in the budget speech, his Government has set up a new non-profit company ‘Invest Karnataka Forum’ to propel investment promotion activities. • His aim is not only to maintain the present leading position of Karnataka but to improve the status in the coming years. His final agenda is to make our State as No.1 with respect to Industry and Business in India. • He suggest that, following five separate sub-groups could be constituted to speed up the process: (i) Infrastructure Development – State Level: This group would concentrate on need for infrastructure development and discuss the issues related to this sector across the State and also to take forward the suggestions & recommendations pertaining to this important sector. (ii) Infrastructure Development – Bengaluru: Already there is existing Vision group and a Task Force to handle infrastructure issues related to Bengaluru. Inputs from that group would be taken to integrate while bringing out the final report of Vision group (Industries). (iii) Manufacturing including Automobile and Aerospace: This group will focus on evolving policy interventions and other measures required for promotion of these promising sectors. This group will also come out with mid-course corrections required if any, in the existing policies for deriving effective end result. (iiii) Textile and Garments: To evolve measures and strategies to retain the glory of this sector in the State and also to promote further investments in this sector where the State is very strong and has added advantages. (v) Electronics and E-Commerce: This group will focus on issues and expectations of these sectors to attract more and more investments. This would also coordinate with the already functioning Vision group on IT/BT industry. • These sub-groups comprises members within the Vision Group and work out Action Plan for short-term measures required for further growth of these sectors, which could be taken up within a period of five to six months. • This Vision Group has right blend of industry captains, associations & policy makers and this combination will certainly enable to come out practicable recommendations from time-to-time. I suggest that, Vision Group can bring out a comprehensive Vision Document, which will certainly serve as a guide for future development industry and related sector in Karnataka. This Vision Document would include long term strategies, enabling the Government to plan and implement at appropriate time intervals, however, within next ten years. • At the end he complimented his cabinet colleagues for their pro-active initiatives and other members of the Vision Group for active participation in today’s first meeting. Also expected the similar involvement and cooperation in the future also for achieving the ultimate objective of building a prosperous and vibrant Karnataka. Minister RV Deshpande added, “as envisaged in the budget speech for the year 2016-17, the State Government has constituted this Vision Group to formulate necessary programmes for rapid industrialisation in the State. Government Orders have been issued to this effect and I am happy that, a host of industrial captains, presidents of leading industry associations and heads of key departments of the State Government have readily accepted to be members of this Vision Group. We have formulated Industrial Policy 2014-19 to guide the development of industries in Karnataka. This policy is envisioned with building a prosperous Karnataka through inclusive, sustainable and balanced industrial development. The Policy has set a mission to attract investment of about Rs.5 lakh crore which will create additional employment for about 15 lakh persons.”
