J’Khand CM in China, pitches for cooperative society in agriculture

Shunyi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das, who is on a five-day visit to China, has said that farmers in the state also can benefit through cooperative society in agriculture.

After visiting a farmers’ cooperative society in China’s Shunyi, the Chief Minister said that such societies would provide them with the opportunity to use modern agricultural technology and their profit from agriculture production would increase.

“The cooperatives of farmers in the field of agriculture in China have made significant contributions to the economy.
