The economic issues are most vital for us and it is of the highest importance that we should fight our biggest enemies – Poverty, unemployment. – Lal Bahadur Shastri.
January 11 marks the DEATH ANNIVERSARY of LAL BAHADUR SHASTRI, one of the greatest Indian statesmen and second Prime Minister of the country.
He played a key role in the White Revolution to make India self-reliant in milk production. Lal Bahadur Shastri created the National Dairy Development Board and backed the Amul milk co-operative in Gujarat’s Anand.
Shastri gave the famous slogan ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan’ during the 1965 India-Pakistan war to boost the morale of soldiers and the farmers in the backdrop of the crucial war and food paucity.
