Crop Increase Urged By Indian Minister •y tha Aueciatad Pratt NEW DELHI.—“It is a shame that India, where 75 per cent of her 325,000,000 people are agriculturists, could not produce sufficient to meet her needs,” says Industry and Sup ply Minister Dr. Shyamaprasad Mookherjee. Even to meet the present low standard of nutrition, Dr. Mook herjee says, India is importing at the rate of 2,000,000 tons per year, costing her about $300,000,000. “Ten per cent increase in the present production in India will cover the margin,” he says.
