President Ram Nath Kovind urges students to make farmers life better
12 February 2018 Current Affairs: President Ram Nath Kovind graced and addressed the 1st convocation of the National Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship and Management (NIFTEM) at Sonepat, Haryana.

Speaking on the occasion, the President said that India has been an agrarian economy ever since our ancestors planted grains in the Indus Valley. Many varieties of nutritious grains and a wide range of pulses mark the Indian experience.

The President said that as a society and as a people we are obligated to make life better for our farmers and to free them from the fickleness of nature and of weather patterns – and, to the degree possible, of the unpredictability of demand and supply.

This is the resolve of the government, and it has instituted policies and programmes to further this.

Use of science and technology along the food chain is essential to these programmes.

And this is where institutions such as NIFTEM and those who graduate from here will play a vital role.
