Rana Randhir Singh, the newly appointed cooperative minister in Nitish cabinet in Bihar sounded positive while meeting the cooperators of the state on Tuesday. Randhir was invited to Biscomaun headquarters near Gandhi Maidan by the Chairman and his team members.
Referring to the successful cooperative movement in other parts of the country especially Gujarat and Maharashtra the Minister wondered why it cannot be replicated in Bihar. He raised several soul searching questions and exhorted the assembled cooperators to gird up.
Randhir in his address said the cooperative movement has to reach out to the last man of the state and sought everybody’s help in making it a huge success in the state. Besides the Board members of the marketing cooperative federation, several senior cooperators were present on the occasion. “The felicitation took place in my chamber but the swelling crowds spilled over to galleries, added Biscomaun Chairman.
Rana Randhir Singh also assured that he is not vindictive at all and in fact praised Biscomaun for doing a good job so far as ensuring urea at a reasonable rate to farmers of the state are concerned.
“It was on my request that the Minister had come; we wanted to felicitate him on his appointment” said seasoned cooperator Sunil Singh who is said to be master at the art of bridging bridges with even arch enemies.
Thanking the minister profusely Biscomaun Chairman reminded his fellow cooperators that the cooperative movement is above caste, creed and politics. It is for farmers and we are able to help them with the help of IFFCO and its MD Dr U S Awasthi.
Biscomaun was dolled up on the occasion to receive the new Minister. Sunil assured Randhir of Biscomaun’s continued efforts to help the farmers of the state.
