Food Security policy to improve living standard of farmers



Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Agriculture and Livestock Mohibullah Khan Friday said that billions of rupees would be spent under the food security policy to improve the agriculture sector and living standard of landlords and farmers.

He said agriculture is the backbone of national economy but unfortunately the past governments neglected this important sector due to which this sector could not witness any significant progress.

Addressing a function held in honor of Retired Di-rector General of Agriculture Abid Kamal, he said that PTI government carried out revolutionary re-forms in agriculture and livestock sector which were showing far reaching results.

The provincial minister said that present govern-ment was striving for the development of agriculture and providing maximum facilities to farmer, adding that Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was em-phasizing on utilizing all resources for the develop-ment of the province and was committed to take the province on the path of development.—APP
