KOTTAYAM: Aimed at promoting agriculture, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy flagged off the ‘Lal Bahadur Shastri Youth Agro Mission Project’ coordinated by the Youth Congress state committee here on Sunday.

The state-level inauguration of the project was done on the first day of Malayalam month Chingam, which is being observed as Farmers’ Day.

Chandy said that it is a revolutionary attempt to rekindle farming spirit in the younger generation at a time when the agrarian culture of the state is fast vanishing. Lauding the interest shown by a section of youth towards agriculture, the Chief Minister expressed hope that the project would add momentum to this trend.

He also said the government would bring more projects for encouraging and promoting young entrepreneurs into the field of agriculture.
