Self-reliance in Food Production

In order to counter the severe food crisis, he and his family after himself practicing ‘upwas’, urged the nation to observe one day fast every week and use all cultivable land to grow food-grains.


He himself grew wheat in his official residence lawn and set an example for the nation. His charismatic call made agricultural scientists to develop hybrid and improved quality of seeds and the farmers to lend their best in making country self-sufficient on food-grains. This was a revolution across the country.
