NEW DELHI: Women are an indispensable part of India's dairy sector and agriculture, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.

Prime Minister Modi was interacting with women associated with Self Help Groups through video conferencing on the Narendra Modi (NaMo) app.

"Today you take any sector, you will see women are working in large numbers. The country's agriculture sector and dairy sector can't be imagined without the contribution of women," the Prime Minister said.

The interaction is aimed at highlighting the positive changes various Self Help Groups have brought at the rural level.

"I will interact with those associated with women Self Help Groups across India. It would be wonderful to hear their experiences, especially how they are driving a positive change at the grassroots level," PM Modi had tweeted on Tuesday.

Some of the groups, which participated in Thursday's interaction, were from Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Rural Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NRLM), Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) and Rural Self Employment Training Institutes (RSETIs).
