Vadodara: The Amul model of co-operatives will travel from the land of Modi to Mamta’s bastion. The Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Limited (KDCMPUL), popularly known as Amul Dairy, is setting up a dairy plant in Kolkata with an investment of over Rs 100 crore.

Interestingly, in 2008 when Gujarat’s dairy union controlled by Congressmen had started the experiment to replicate the Amul model of co-operatives in West Bengal (WB) by collecting milk locally, there were apprehensions about the success of White Revolution in WB, which was then the red bastion.
