Himachal can take a leaf out of the book of Sikkim and explore organic farming : PM Modi

PM Modi inaugurated two-day Global Investors Meet at Dharamshala. Addressing the gathering PM Modi said :

  • India jumped 79 ranks on the Ease of Doing Business index between 2014-19. It is not just a rise in rankings, but a revolution in the way business is done in India.
  • Himachal will also benefit from the Rs 100 lakh crore to be invested on infrastructure in India in the next few years. The state delivers peace, and its society accepts geographical & linguistic diversity, fulfilling conditions ideal for business.
  • The public infrastructure fund, Rs 5 lakh crore, that is to be used in the next five years, will also benefit Himachal Pradesh.
  • Himachal is fulfilling every requirement for business. It delivers peace and a society that accepts diversity.
  • Himachal can take a leaf out of the book of Sikkim and explore organic farming. There’s probably no company in the pharmacy industry that doesn’t produce its medicines in Himachal already.

MK Stalin on Tamil film Asuran

@mkstalin :

  • Asuran more than being a film, it is a lesson!
  • It focuses on Panchami land rights restoration, speaks against caste based community and is brave enough to question caste violence!
  • Appreciation to Vetrimaran for his Story telling-Screenplay-Dialogues & Dhanush for giving life to the role
