Shri Marathe’s words follow
Worldwide countries are facing adverse impact of failure of market mechanism which was supposed to be panacea for all economic ills.
If Socialism has failed to create wealth and economic prosperity and deprived masses of democratic values, Capitalism is to be blamed for reckless exploitation of natural resources and human values, besides creating vast disparities and social tensions.
To overcome these and other related issues, the need of the hour is to evolve a Co Op Centric model of Development for Participative, Equitable and Sustainable Growth through a large number of autonomous Co Op Economic Enterprises, owned and democratically managed by the stakeholders.
Let us all work for re-energizing the Co Op Movement and Build A Better Bharat.
