HAILAKANDI, Jan 8 - Karimganj MP Radheshyam Biswas has urged the fishermen of Matijuri Paikan to make use of the implements given away by the Government to raise production to ameliorate their economic condition.
Speaking at a distribution function organised by the District Fishery at its office complex, Radheyshyam Biswas said the farmers must make proper use of the implements to raise their standard of living. “I urge the beneficiaries to make optimum use of the implements provided by the administration to raise production as well as their income for a better life,” he said. Biswas cautioned them not to sell-off the implements for one-time gain but to make proper use for long term gains. “If you sell-off the implements, you will earn only once. But if you make proper use of the implements, you will continue to make regular profits out of it,” he said.
Deputy Commissioner Moloy Bora too urged upon the farmers to pitch in their efforts to make Matijuri Paikan an economically vibrant and resilient model village under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY). Bora appealed to the beneficiaries to make use of the implements to supplement their income and not to fall prey to the evil machinations of vested circles by ‘selling off’ (the implements) for petty gains.
MLA, Hailakandi, Anowar Hussain Laskar exhorted upon the beneficiaries to make optimum use of the implements to get regular flow of income.
Laskar assured the farming community that they would get all the facilities once Matijuri Paikan comes up as a model village under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana. Assistant Fishery Officer, Sumanta Kumar Das, in his welcome address, praised the Deputy Commissioner for all his support in making distribution of fishery equipment to beneficiaries possible.
Radheyshyam Biswas and Moloy Bora gave away bicycles fitted with containers, cast and drag nets to some of the beneficiaries in the presence of MLA Hailakandi and fishery officials. Altogether 17 beneficiaries got bicycles with containers, 26 cast nets and 10 drag nets.
