CMFRI, Library (2017) Let us do good to farmers The Hindu dated 18th February 2017. The Hindu.
Governor P. Sathasivam never misses an opportunity to remind the scientific community that their research should benefit the common man. His inaugural address during the platinum jubilee celebrations of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) here on Saturday was no different. “No scientific organisation can succeed by remaining alienated from people. CMFRI should remain committed to the welfare of fisherfolk by helping them ensure sustainable fisheries through participatory mode,” he said. Recalling that he hailed from a very remote village in Tamil Nadu, the Governor said being the son of a farmer he knew their pulse. On the Union government’s intervention to check the rising prices of onion during his tenure as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Mr. Sathasivam said the Centre had stabilised the prices by importing onion from Pakistan. “This is one side of the coin. But the other side, you may not be aware of. Even top bureaucrats fail to notice that the same onion is sold at ₹3 to ₹4 a kilo in some seasons. We have to protect the interests of both consumers and producers,” he added.
