Chandigarh– Dec 5, 2020: The Vice-Chancellor of Chaudhary Charan Singh,
Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Professor Samar Singh said
that if we want to bring a second green revolution in the country, the
role of women and their participation in the agriculture sector has to
be ensured. For this, it is necessary to provide incentives and
financial facilities to women farmers.
The Vice-Chancellor was speaking as the Chief Guest on
the occasion of ‘Mahila Kisan Divas’, observed at the University’s
Home Science College. The program was presided over by Dr. Bimala
Dhanda, the head of the college.
Professor Singh said that today women constitute half of
the total population of the country, yet they are still deprived of
basic facilities, especially in rural areas. Not only should women be
appreciated for their contribution to the field of agriculture, they
should also be further involved in farming for their empowerment.
About 200 women who performed well in the field of
agriculture also shared their farming experiences on the occasion.
