Raipur (Chhattisgarh) [India], Feb 18 ( ANI ): Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Saturday lauded the farmers of Naxal-hit Dantewada for bringing in a green revolution through organic farming.

"This is a peaceful answer to Naxalism that Green Revolution can bring in a positive change in society rather than violence," said Raman Singh.

"The 'Adim' rice brand of Dantewada has now become famous all over the country. Its fame has reached Bengaluru and Chennai. It has not only become the identity of Dantewada but of the entire Bastar division. Farmers of Dantewada district have created a company named 'Bhumgadi' and linked it to the self-help group. So far, more than one and a half thousand farmers have joined the 'Bhoomgadi' company as a shareholder," he added.

The Chief Minister further expressed happiness over the 'Bhumgadi' Kisan Sangathan's own Mini Rice Mill, where rice is being made from organic farming paddy.

"The dream of the Green Revolution is fast becoming a reality with the hard work of the farmers in the district of south Bastar (Dantewada) suffering from Naxal violence," said the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister.

Last year, the farmers of the Sahayahya group of Rice Mill sold 2000 quintals of rice. The farmers also received a digital payment of around Rs 50 lakh from their company 'Bhumugadi' in lieu of this. ( ANI )
