In order to have a good crop with backward and forward linkage, it is better to plan the growing of the crop/fish in a systematic manner following scientific know-how and do-how.

I, on the auspicious occasion of  Eid  extend my warm greetings and well wishes to all the islanders and in particular to Muslim brothers and sisters. The festival is an occasion to reaffirm our trust in the unity of humanity, to be generous towards the disadvantaged and the needy and to follow the path of selfless sacrifice and forgiveness. We all must derive inspiration from the celebration of this day and strive to promote universal brotherhood. On the pious  occasion of Eid, let us remind ourselves of the unity of mankind and resolve to strive for communal harmony and peace. “May the festival bring all the people of Andaman and Nicobar Islands together in a celebration of our composite culture and spread peace and harmony and bring prosperity to all”, I wish. I also wish you all to have full mental and physical strength to fight against COVID- 19 and keep the islands free from Corona.
