Ajay Vir Jakhar said that his Commission would request CII to intervene into budget discussions pertaining to agriculture and work upon removing the trust deficit among its various stakeholders.
While sharing his thoughts, Dr Balwinder Singh Sidhu, Commissioner–Agriculture, Government of Punjab said that Technology and Innovations can only function if there is sufficient water to irrigate our fields.
