Punjab chief minister (CM) Parkash Singh Badal visited the site of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur War Memorial at Chapparchiri to review the arrangements for the first Progressive Punjab Agriculture Summit to be held from February 16-19, 2014, here on Saturday.

Chairing a meeting of various departments on the occasion, the CM asked them to ensure that proper arrangements were made for the summit in which more than 15,000 progressive farmers, agriculture experts and representatives of various companies related with agriculture were scheduled to take part. He said the main aim of the summit was to further boost the agriculture in the state.

Badal added, “As farming was no longer a profitable preposition, emphasis would be laid on making the farmers aware about the diversification of crops.”
