India is the largest milk-producing country in the world: Giriraj Singh

@girirajsinghbjp
Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Giriraj Singh said India is the largest milk-producing country in the world and animal husbandry has been a major contributor to the growth of farmers.

He was speaking at an event organised to celebrate National Milk Day in New Delhi on 26th November. The Minister said the government is trying to increase the export of milk products, but some countries deliberately look for deficiencies in India's products.  

He said, milk production in India has gone up from 137 million tonnes to 187 million tonnes and farmers have benefited immensely. He also recalled Dr. Verghese Kurien's significant contribution to increasing milk production. Ministers of State for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying Dr. Sanjeev Kumar Balyan and Pratap Chandra Sarangi along with other senior officials were also present on the occasion.

National Milk Day is celebrated to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Verghese Kurien, the father of India’s White Revolution. The organized milk sector flourished in the country after the Independence due to the efforts of Dr Kurien. India's milk output surpasses that of all the European Union countries combined, which is followed by the US, China.
