‘Cooperation model’ most suited to India’s growth, says Amit Shah | India News – Times of Nation
Two of the four projects — milk powder factory and butter plant capacity expansions — are all set to take AmulFed to new heights. The capacity of the milk powder factory has now gone up from 35 lakh litres to 50 lakh litres per day, with the new project that took an investment of Rs 257 crore. The expansion makes AmulFed Asia’s largest fully automated dairy. On the other hand, the new butter plant triples AmulFed’s butter manufacturing capacity from 40 tonnes to 120 tonnes per day. The plant has been built with an investment of Rs 85 crore.
Shah said it is a subject matter of detailed study as to which economic model is the best for India. ‘But our Prime Minister realised when he was Gujarat CM that if there is one model which can benefit all people, it is the cooperation-based model. That is why the PM has started the cooperation ministry,’ Shah said.
‘It is not easy to take benefits of development to all sections of society in a country having a population of 130 crore. There are a number of economic development models that have been propagated. Some are suitable for countries with populations of 2-10 crore,’ the Union minister said.
Shah said the cooperation model of economic development is not new to Gujarat. ‘What started off as a movement against exploitation has today become a movement of 36 lakh members of Amul, which is Gujarat’s pride,’ the minister said.
Commenting on the formation of the Union cooperation ministry, Shah said- ‘Many people were sceptical about this move. They asked what the point in starting this ministry was. For me though, it is a matter of pride that I am the country’s first cooperation minister. This department has the potential to accelerate development and make people economically strong.’
