Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) organized at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

After India's independence, many brands were created in the country, but none like Amul.

Today Amul has become a symbol of the strength of India's cattle rearers.

'The largest milk producing country in the world'

PM Modi said, 'Today we are the largest milk producing country in the world.

8 crore people are directly associated with India's dairy sector.

In the last 10 years alone, milk production in India has increased by about 60%.

Per capita milk availability has also increased by about 40% in the last 10 years.

The dairy sector in the world is growing at the rate of only 2%.

Whereas the dairy sector in India is growing at the rate of 6%.

I want to congratulate the biggest stakeholder of the dairy sector.

It's biggest stakeholder and great contributor is our livestock.

I would like to express my gratitude for his great contribution in making this journey successful.

Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation is a landmark occasion in its illustrious journey.
