President praises farmers of Haryana for adopting new methods to manage stubble, crop residue

@rashtrapatibhvn
President Ram Nath Kovind has praised the farmers of Haryana for adopting new methods to manage stubble and crop residue. He was addressing the closing ceremony of the 4th Agri Leadership Summit organised by the Haryana government in Sonipat's Ganaur yesterday.

The President also expressed confidence that the farmers would help find a solution to the problem of pollution emanating from stubble burning. Mr Kovind said, the people and the government of the state were making efforts for the overall development, including enhancing ease of doing business and improving social indicators such as child sex ratio.

He said, adoption of modern, 21st century technologies in agriculture was part of this process, and farmers would benefit from such collaborations. The President also condemned the terrorist attack at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 CRPF soldiers were martyred on Thursday. On the occasion, Mr Kovind honoured some farmers with 'Kisaan Ratna' and 'Krishi Ratna' awards.
