PM Modi says, unfortunate that people know politicians but not scientists
During a release of two-part book series on eminent agricultural scientist Dr. M.S. Swaminathan, PM Modi said it is unfortunate that the youth of India keep information about politicians but have not about scientists who have either made or are making immense contribution in development of the country. Highlighting Swaminathan’s role in India's Green Revolution, PM Modi described him as a ‘Kisan Vaigyanik’ that is, farmers’ scientist rather than just a ‘Krishi Vaigyanik’-agricultural scientist.
