As we observe the World Tuberculosis Day today, it is a time to raise awareness about the burden of tuberculosis (TB), recognise achievements in the prevention and control off TB, and renew our commitment to ending this devastating disease.

TB is preventable and curable. Yet, too many people still suffer from it. TB elimination would have widespread health, economic, and social benefits for our country, and the world.

Anyone can get TB. People with TB can be found in every state; in rural areas and cities; in schools, workplaces, homes; and in many other places where people are in close contact.

Ending TB requires maintaining and strengthening current TB control priorities while increasing efforts to identify and treat latent TB infection among high-risk populations. Let us all strive to eliminate this disease from India.

We Need Green Revolution 2.0 to Double Farmers' Incomes by 2022 as per Prime Minister's Vision

Excited to have inaugurated and addressed the Rural Innovation Startup Conclave (RISC), 2017 at the National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (NIRDPR), in Hyderabad, as chief guest.

Today, we as a nation, and this Conclave, is focused on how to synchronise modern-day developmental concepts and entrepreneurial models in agriculture to enable economic empowerment of farmers and others living in rural areas.

Under the vision and leadership of Shri Narendra Modi ji, our government has taken up a daunting task to double income of farmers by 2022, 75th years of our Independence.

Income of farmers can be doubled only by way of increasing profitability of agriculture and creating rural employment in other value adding down-stream industries related to agro-processing and enabling supplementary non-agricultural income for farmers.

We are still stuck with previous era Green Revolution whereas Industrial revolution has advanced, with the 4th Generation Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) being the contemporary phase. We need to create and launch Agriculture 2.0 without any delay.

We need frugal and grass root-level innovations in crop production, crop protection, prevention of losses, both pre and post-harvest. The modern rural landscape can be transformed with such frugal and rural innovations.

There is a perception, which is wrong, that ‘Make in India’, ‘Skill India’ and ‘Digital India’ are urban affairs. Our government is very clear – as much as smart cities, we are passionate about creating smart villages. The DigiGaon (digital village) initiative is a proof of our commitment.

I am glad NIRDPR has rightly identified the need to support the young innovators and startups and decided to organize the Rural Innovators Startup Conclaves as an annual feature.

I am now wondering as to who will emerge to champion rural start-up culture and become its first success icons. Let us all look forward to that era-redefining success ahead.
