    Published on July 18, 2019

    Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said the central government should link grants and allocations made by the Finance Commission to states with the reforms in the agriculture sector.

    He said, a proposal in this regard was discussed at the first meeting of a High-Powered Committee of Chief Ministers for Transformation of Indian Agriculture.

    Briefing reporters in New Delhi, Mr Fadnavis, who is convener of the committee, said there should be greater coordination between the ministries of agriculture and commerce as one deals with production, while the other with marketing.

    He also said that unless all states come on board, the country will not witness major transformation in the agriculture sector.
