AHMEDABAD: "If the Government of Gujarat keeps allotting land arbitrarily to industries, 62% of the state's land will be acquired by industrial corridors and corporates in just 15 years. Where will you grow crops then? The farmers of Gujarat will have to pay heavily for this," said environmental activist Mahesh Pandya from Paryavaran Mitra.
To mark World Environment Day, Paryavaran Mitra held a press briefing on Tuesday. This year's theme is 'Think.Eat.Save'. However, there has been a decline in the state's crop production.
