Title: Need to establish a Krishi Vigyan Kendra at Saran District in Bihar.

TEXT :

SHRI RAJIV PRATAP RUDY (CHHAPRA): Sir, the district of Saran in Bihar is one of the most backward regions in North Bihar, despite having the most fertile land. It is still under severe grip of poverty and unemployment. For a long time, a proposal to establish a Krishi Vigyan Kendra is under consideration by the Ministry of Agriculture. The proposal was to establish it at Martourah, a Sub-Divisional Headquarter, with lot of infrastructural facility or at Sonepur, one of the old seed farms. The local NGO and the rural Youth Coordination Centre at Amrour, Saran, has submitted a proposal, which is under consideration for quite some time. I request the proposal for establishing a Krishi Vigyan Kendra at Saran, Chepra by the Ministry of Agriculture, may be taken up on priority basis.
