K’taka CM, Dy CM expresses grief over Kurien`s death
Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar Sunday expressed grief over the death of Verghese Kurien, the father of India’s `white revolution.`
Kurien laid the foundation for `operation flood` at Anand in Gujarat by starting Milk Produce Co-operative Society which later spread across the nation including Karnataka, the Chief Minister said in his condolence message.
"Milk Produce Co-operative Societies have been mainly responsible for strengthening the rural economy. In the death of Kurien, the nation has lost a committed promoter of cooperative movement and an able administrator", he said.
Deputy Chief Minister and state BJP President K S Eswarappa also mourned the death of Kurien, describing him as a person who transformed India from a milk deficient nation to a self-reliant one.
"With Kurien`s death, we have lost a visionary who changed people`s perception about the efficiency of cooperative sector", he said.
