Dear Forum Farmer Friends,
There is a conference running from a couple of days in Tirupathi, A.P, in Rama Naidu Kalyana Mantapam, Tirupathi,A.P, for agri Students, Agri Professors and Farmers . This is being conducted by State Govt of A.P and Agri universities of A.P, on ZBNF, on huge scale.
As per the news stated in a leading Telugu News Paper " Eenadu " dtd 14.09.2016, in page
number -9, writing, about this unfortunate incident , which took place, on 13.09.2016 at 11 am. It seems , sri Palekar stated that Agriculture is not at all a science and Pointed the Agriculture Professors that they don’t know any thing about agriculture, and Agri Professors are not doing any thing to Agriculture , in the meeting , in front of thousands of farmers,on the stage. It seems these dialouges were repeated more times, from the stage, when there was a huge gathering.
Immediately After this incidence, all the Agri professors and all the Agri students , boycotted the conference, unanimously and all came out of the hall, with big shoutings and grievances, went and reported the matter to the Special Principle secretary of Dept of Agriculture, Sri Vijaykumar, Andhra Pradesh. They had a discussion for two hours and finally the Pr secretary convenced all of them and they once again attended the conference.
As per the paper news, again conference afternoon session started and again Sri Subhash Palekar challenged , number of times, with the Agri Professors and commented that they don’t know anything, from the stage, infront of all. Immediately all the agri professors and students started arguing with Sri Subhash Palekar and gave counters to him. Finally conference was stopped and all the Agri professors and students, along with the farmers, all went away.
With the above incidence, all the Agri Professors and Agri students, are about to give a written complaint to Govt of Andhra Pradesh, against Sri Subash Palekar.
Further it is written that similar incidence took place in last Kakinada, A.P, ZBNF Conference also.
Here I want to inform, with my little knowledge that Agriculture is on the earth since Ancient man days. It is gift of God. Since then so many persons, 1001 to say, have developped diffarent systems in agriculture. Some are followed and some are rejected. Some are good ,some are partially good, some are bad etc…etc. We can encourage good systems of any one and will not follow bad or not practicable.
Some systems are good for certain cadre farmers and some are not good/Practicable for some cadre farmers. No system is to be followed by all and none can say that, other systems are not to be followed.
World is so big and till now no one has brought any thing in to the earth but only bringing in to lime light , the ones which are existing.
This I brought to the notice of our forum for the facts to be known and for exchange of views. I want to know our friends views also on this.
This is not to comment on any one nor to hurt any one.
with best wishes , g.p.rao, farmer
