- Lockdown rendered Ganga clean. Better than what was not achieved after the spending of Re 5000 crores. So is the Yamuna. Faulty industrialisation has polluted rivers, spoilt the environment.
- Modern agriculture caused a 65 percent fall in water level and degraded 30 percent of farmlands.
- PAU’s farm scientists never advised farmers against the leveling of sand dunes for rice farming.
- Installed at equal cost to leveling, the sprinklers could have irrigated natural, unlevelled fields for growing NOT rice but vegetables/fruits.
- PAU rendered farming an industry dependent on fertilizers/chemicals changing farmers’ health/mental make-up driving them to urbanisation/ depression /debt/ suicide. Inorganic food grains are not healthy and do not build needed immunity among humans against Corona.
