I encouraged youth to take up agriculture: Tawadkar

MARGAO: Minister for  Agriculture and  Sports  Ramesh Tawadkar  said  that he has  arranged a programme on May 1, near mamlatdar’s office in Canacona, to   brief on his  service as minister  for  agriculture, sports,  animal husbandry and veterinary  services (AHVS) and tribal  welfare  during the last four years.

Addressing the media in presence of the directors of  the  respective departments,  Tawadkar said that  a booklet highlighting various works undertaken and  how effectively he has worked for the  people of  Goa will be released on May 1 at the hands of the  Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar.

Copies of the booklet will be distributed in all the  constituencies.

“Except for Fatorda’s Nehru stadium all other stadiums are constructed during my  tenure as  Sports Minister. Braving the criticism, I marched ahead and continued with the development works. I encouraged the youth with lucrative incentives to take up the agriculture. During my  tenure,  a lot of loopholes in the AHVS  were plugged. More than 21 schemes were formulated  for the upliftment of the tribal people of the  state,” he said elaborating  his  works.
