Mooshahary stresses self sufficiency in food



Meghalaya Governor RS Mooshahary said that the north eastern region must look at Nagaland to attain self sufficiency in food production. Opening the Northeast Agri Fair 2012 organised by the Assam Agricultural University in Guwahati on Friday, he said the northeastern region produce only 2.94 million tonnes food grain while the requirement is about 10 million tones. Mooshahary said that the food security is the most important issue at this moment, given that all the northeastern states are food deficient.
