Cooperative model best suited to India’s development: Amit Shah
The cooperative economic development model is the only one that will work to achieve comprehensive and inclusive development of India, which has a population of 130 crore, Union Cooperation Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday.
Addressing a rally after inaugurating here a powdered milk factory, poly film manufacturing plant and other projects of the Gujarat Milk Marketing Cooperative Federation (GCMMF), Shah said the cooperative model has the ability to make everyone prosperous, and Amul is a living example of that.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi recognized the cooperative as the best business model for the country of 130 crore when he was chief minister of Gujarat, he said.
Shah said taking development for all and making it work in a country with a population of 130 crore is hard work, while several other business models work for countries with a much smaller population than India.
“Which economic model will suit the requirements of this country is a big deal and many experts have even failed. But, 75 years after the country saw many rules, the country’s prime minister (Modi) tested the model and s ‘realized that he was then chief minister of Gujarat, that if there is an economic model for a global and comprehensive economic development of a country of 130 crore inhabitants, then it is only cooperative ” , did he declare.
Shah said he believes the field of cooperation has the capacity to make everyone prosper.
The Amul model is an example of what can be achieved when 36 lakhs work together, he said.
This model provides the best example and the most successful experience of empowering women, added the Minister.
