Second White revolution…in Tamil Nadu

Chennai: With an aim of augmenting milk production, Tamil Nadu government today announced that it would procure 10,000 dairy cows with financial assistance from banks.

The move was part of the Jayalalithaa government’s efforts to usher in a ‘Second White Revolution,’ Dairy Development Minister V Moorthy told the Assembly.

“The Dairy Development department will provide 10,000 milch cows to milk producers at the village level,” he said, adding, financial assistance from bank would be sought for the scheme.

He said the government was already providing free dairy cows to beneficiaries, referring to the ruling AIADMK’s key sop, saying the “scheme is a success.”
