In order to ignite cooperative movement in Jharkhand Sahakar Bharati is planning to hold a conference of dairy cooperatives in the state in the month of August. In this bid leaders of Sahakar Bharati are busy meeting ministers and other stake holders of dairy cooperatives to make the conference a success.
Recently leaders met the State Cooperative Minister Randhir Singh at his residence in Ranchi and apprised him about the conference on dairy cooperatives. Minister listened them patiently and assured them of all support.
The delegation included National Cooperative Dairy Federation of Indian Limited MD Kishore Supekar, Campco former President Konkodi Padmanabha, Sahakar Bharati Office Secretary Dhananjay Kumar Singh, among others.
The delegation also met the Managing Director of Medha Dairy and also visited the plant. The state has a huge potential for the growth of cooperatives and Sahakar Bharati would first begin with women and the downtrodden, said Sahakar Bharati office secretary Dhananjay Kumar Singh to this correspondent over phone.
“We are also organizing a five day workshop from 19th June to 23rd June for resolving issues, which act as hurdles in the growth of the co-op movement in the state”, he informed.
It bears recall that Jharkhand has the weakest cooperative movement in the country, as revealed in a study done by the apex cooperative body NCUI recently. Maharashtra was adjudged a state having the most robust movement.
