Nitin Gadkari, a union minister, stated on Friday that research and innovation focused on tribal, rural, and agricultural issues are necessary for the country’s villages to thrive.

“The greatest expanding economy is ours. Our prime minister wants to grow the GDP of our nation to $5 trillion. We need research and innovation that is focused on tribal, rural, and agricultural issues for this.

Up until recently, 90% of the people of the country resided in villages; today, just 65% do. People have not gone voluntarily, but rather due to issues in the villages, according to the minister of roads and transportation.

“Today, cotton is affordable, but clothing is expensive. Oranges and tomatoes are less expensive here, but their juices are more expensive. Through the expansion of agriculture into the electricity and energy industry, we must provide wealth to the villages. According to him, agricultural waste may be used to make bio-CNG and LNG, and biomass will produce ethanol. Fossil fuel imports into the nation currently total Rs 16 lakh billion. Villages would develop and people will move back to the villages if farmers become involved in energy generation and are able to produce energy worth Rs 10 lakh crore, he added.

Gadkari urged students to avoid short cuts, saying, “Students seated here should become employment producers and not seekers. Learning has no age restrictions. Whatever we can from everyone, we should learn. People who didn’t attend school frequently do great things. The university presented the late poet Vamandada Kardak with a posthumous D Litt during the occasion in recognition of his poems and fight for social equality. In attendance were former education minister Kamalkishor Kadam, vice chancellor Vilas Sapkal, and university chancellor Ankushrao Kadam.
