The poor peoples really getting trouble to get these things with genuine quality. Our science & technologies should support to find more quality/healthy things for our country peoples.

आदरणीय नमस्कार,
महोदय जी, पशु धन (गाय) का भी आधार न• नहीं हो सकता क्या ? क्योंकि रोजाना हजारों गायों को सड़कहादसे मे जान गवानी पड रहीं है आधार न• हो तो उन मालिकोंको पकडा जा सकता हैजिन्होने गाय को बोझ समझकर मरने के लिये हाईवे पर छोड़ दिया ।। बड़ी पीड़ा होती है जब में गायों को राष्ट्रीय व राज्य मार्गों पर गायों को लावारिस देखता हू और तो और नसीराबाद घाटीअजमेर मे रोजाना कम से कम एक गाय मर रहीं है । क्यों नहीं इन गायों को सरकार कब्जे मे लेती है धन्यवाद। आपका अभिषेक

In the field of R & D, we are lagging from the world order.We must put hands in healing the GAP between the Domestic demand & the Gross generated / manufactured products. "Self-Reliance" needs to be promoted & Indigenous Scientific Designing & Innovation need to be promoted to safeguard the greater National Interest. Apart from all, the projects relating to"FOOD4ALL" must be given much emphasis,to enable Indian public move towards SELF-RELIANCE.Farmers to be given light of "ECONOMIC FREEDOM"

continuation.... Govt should raise this issue in WTO world trade organisation to bring pricing norms as important in cross country sales.So pharmacy owners cant sell a tablet worth 100 rs including all expenses, to sell them at 1000rs or more. PROFIT SHOULD COME FROM MORE PRODUCTION NOT BY HIGHER PRICING.If we are not bringing them now then it leads to a world FULL OF POVERTY PEOPLE & few ultra rich,so it triggers another revolution.ACT NOW ELSE greedy producers may bring worst scenario.
