The Minister was speaking to directors who won the recent elections to NARMUL (Nalgonda and Rangareddy Milk Producers Mutually Aided Cooperative Union Limited) at Pragathi Bhavan here. The directors, accompanied by Energy Minister G Jagadish Reddy, thanked the Minister for giving them the opportunity to serve dairy farmers in the State.

Congratulating all the six directors including two women directors who were elected unanimously to NARMUL, Rama Rao asked them to develop NARMUL (Mother Dairy) into a profit-making unit on par with the State government’s Vijaya Dairy. He emphasised the need for encouraging agriculture-allied sectors to enhance the income of farmers and promised all support from the government in this regard.

He said Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was striving for the development of the dairy sector since State formation and strengthen Vijaya Dairy which was on the verge of closure before Telangana State was formed.

The newly elected directors of NARMUL Karnati Jayasri, Alivelu, K Jalandhar Reddy, R Lakshminarasimha Reddy, G Sridhar Reddy, and Ch Surender Reddy along with Government Whip Gongidi Sunitha Mahender Reddy, Rajya Sabha MPs Badugula Lingaiah Yadav, MLAs and MLCs from erstwhile Nalgonda and Rangareddy districts, called on Rama Rao.

NARMUL Chairman election postponed

Nalgonda: The election of chairman to Nalgonda-Ranga Reddy Milk Producers Mutually Aided Cooperative Union Limited (NARMUL) was postponed to September 30 due to absence of all 10 newly elected Directors.

But, not a single director attended the special board meeting. Subsequently, the election was postponed to September 30.

NARMUL owns 20 milk units in Nalgonda, Yadadri-Bhongir, Suryapet districts and four each in Ranga Reddy and Vikarabad districts and one feed mixing plant is situated at Bhongir so as to supply cattle feed and mineral mixture to the farmers of the six districts.
