Vasundhara Raje, who unfortunately left early due to sickness yesterday, thoroughly enjoyed her field trip on the Second Day of GRAM 2016.
Met celebrity animals, viewed spectacular cultural performances, inspected novel agricultural machinery displayed at Smart Farms and signed major MoUs for investment. BJP CM Raje had a didactic but pleasant field day at GRAM 2016. With this, the CM intended to analyse the success of this event and to ensure smooth transmission of knowledge from paper to field.
Stalls and Farms were Thoroughly Inspected by Dignitaries
Rajasthan CM used this opportunity to closely monitor the farm proceedings at various levels. She visited stalls to get a first-hand experience of technology displayed at organic farms. After inspecting various models and machinery, she quenched her thirst for knowledge by questioning stall managers about their products. Thousands of farmers, who flocked in from neighbouring districts were excited to interact with the CM. It was a pleasure to see her getting photographs clicked with commoners present on spot.
She also made it a point to interact with farmers and agriculture experts. Farmers shared their experiences with her thanked her for this development. Other state leaders, MPs and minister accompanied her to organic farms.
Raje Was Fascinated by Captivating Performances by Celebrity Animals
Ten feet tall and 1500 kilo heavy black, Haryanvi ‘Murrah’ bull was the star showstopper of this event. CM expressed special interest in his upbringing and acquired information regarding his lifestyle from its owner Mr. Karamveer Singh. Her trip to ranch was followed by an outstanding performance put up by a pair of beautifully decorated camels, local dancers, dholis and herdsmen. Immaculate white ‘Malani’ horses performed a quick shimmy to the beats of Bhangra and the animal farm resounded with the clucking of MP’s tough, dark ‘Kadaknath’, an indigenously bred variety of chicken.
