Written by: Staff

Palakkad, June 29 (UNI) Union Panchayati Raj Minister Mani Shanker Aiyar today said the district Panchayats could market certain products through the Rural Business Hub Council (RBHC) at Delhi.

Mr Aiyar, who is here in connection with the inauguration of a ''gramin karshika mela,'' told newsmen that the RBHC would help the 13 district blocks to market their agriculture products and food items, specially found in Kerala, through the hubs.

The Minister said he would approach two or three business houses seeking financial help to the panchayats to produce goods.

Mr Aiyar held discussions with delegates from block panchayat and district panchayat members and municipal officials in the district and said Palakkad district was the best district in implementing development work in tribal and SC/ST settlements.

Earlier inaugurating the 'mela' at Vadakarapathi panchayat in the district, he said officials and representatives from other parts of the country would visit Kerala to study the contributions made by the local self-government institutions in Kerala.
