CHITWAN, Nov 28: Minister for Agriculture and Livestock Development, Ghanashyam Bhusal has stressed on a hard-hitting policy to reform the agriculture sector.
Speaking at a workshop on challenges, problems and solutions in the dairy sector organized in Chitwan on Saturday, Minister Bhusal said that the five policies were drafted to reform the agro sector in the country.
The Agriculture Minister said the government is serious to tackle the problems seen in the dairy sector as most dairy products were in stock due to COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has adversely affected the whole market and the dairy market has also been worse-hit, Bhusal said.
Minister Bhusal shared that the homework has been forwarded to guarantee the sale of dairy products. He also stressed on reforming the policy as the 35-year-old policies and programs are still in practice in the sector.
