Cabinet Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa has said the Cooperative Department is providing machines to farmers on subsidy through cooperative societies in villages to prevent burning of crop residue.

"The more farmers associate themselves with the cooperative societies, the more they would gain from the initiave," he said, while inaugurating a revamped store of the multipurpose cooperative agriculture services society at Bhinder Kalan village in the district.

Appreciating the efforts of the society, he said the group was not only getting good revenue, it was also helping the farmers to a great extent. Randhawa said the Bhinder Kalan society was among those 500 societies in the state that were in profit.

Local MLA Sukhjit Singh Lohgarh, Registrar, Cooperative Societies, Vikas Garg and Dharamkot SDM Narinder Singh Dhaliwal accompanied the minister.

At Khosa Pando village, Randhawa said despite having only 500 members, the village society was running in profit. He said its store was selling fertilisers, essential goods, cattle feed among other things.

He appealed to the farmers that in wake of Covid spread, they should keep themselves safe at home, in fields and at grain markets.
