Jamshedpur, Dec 3: Rakesh Mohanty completed his management course from XLRI and got a lucrative job but opted out to delve into farming at his native Agurdangra village in Patamda Panchayat. He gave a new face to traditional farming by implementing new concepts resulting in higher yields and naturally superior income.
He invited East Jamshedpur Assembly constituency MLA Saryu Roy to visit his village.
The legislator took time off to visit Rakesh Mohanty’s ancestral village and after going around the crop fields was highly impressed and complimented the management graduate for the excellent and innovative changes he had added to the concept of farming. Saryu Roy observed, “Rakesh Mohanty is a perfect example of youth sensing income potentials through farming. He gave up his hi profile job to return to his native village and improve the quality of farming and farm yields. He and his team have brought sunshine of hope and have hopefully set a trend for other young people to follow. Why migrate to other places in quet of jobs when the lands beckon them to create wealth at home?”
Earlier, Saryu Roy was accorded a warm welcome at Beltand Chowk by villagers led by Bhaskar Mukhi. He was garlanded and greeted in traditional manner. The legislator on his way to Agurdangra village garlanded the life size statue of Bhagwan Birsa Munda at Patamda Chowk. Those who accompanied Saryu Roy were BJM members Subodh Srivastav, SP Singh, Gauri Shankar Mahanty, Vibhuti Mahto, Mihir Mahto, Raju Kumbhakar and others.
