Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi on Tuesday felicitated two women farmers for their inspiring role in organic farming and hoped their success stories would be replicated in other parts of the state. Mukhi felicitated Nabanita Das and Deepika Rabha and said their activities have the potential to change the fate of organic farming in the state in a number of ways.

At a function held in Raj Bhavan on Tuesday, Mukhi said the efforts of the two farmers will have a cascading effect that can help in realising Prime Minister Narendra Modi's assertion of transforming Assam and other NE states into a hub of organic farming.

Assuring all help to the two farmers, he directed the agriculture department and other line departments to aid the duo's efforts in expanding the parameters of organic farming. Mukhi asked the two farmers to make use of government subsidies and replicate their agricultural practices in other parts of the state. Both the farmers had earlier been conferred with the national honour of 'Ideal Farmers' by the Centre.
