Ensuring income security to farmers will help achieve aspirations of Acharya Ranga: VP

New Delhi, Nov 7 (UNI) Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday said ensuring income security to all farmers will help achieve the core aspiration of Acharya NG Ranga which was the welfare of the farmers.

Inaugurating the 120th birth anniversary celebrations of Acharya NG Ranga organised by Ranga Trust, Mr Naidu described him as a great freedom fighter, a farmers’ leader, a social reformer and an outstanding Parliamentarian.

“A true son of the soil, he is considered as the father of the Indian Kisan Movement along with “Swami Sahajanand Saraswati,” he added.
Mr Naidu called for multipronged efforts to make Indian agriculture sustainable and profitable. He said

that ‘we will be able to produce more in less area by changing our approach and practices’. Recalling his personal association with Acharya Ranga, the Vice-President said he has been deeply

influenced by the life and vision of Acharya N G Ranga. Calling him as the epitome of dignity, Mr Naidu said for Acharya Ranga politics and public life was a mission and he always followed value-based politics.
Talking about the high standards of debates and parliamentary conduct shown by Acharya Ranga, he said that there used to be rapt attention whenever Acharya Ranga spoke in Parliament.

Mr Naidu further said that as the Chairman of Upper House, it pains him to see the standards of debates going down. He appealed to all lawmakers to study the life and teachings of Acharya Ranga and learn from his conduct as a Parliamentarian. Debates should be constructive and not disruptive, he added.
