Shah, who is also the Union Home Minister, also announced that the number of primary agriculture cooperatives (PACs) wil be increased to 3 lakh in the next five years. At present, there are about 65,000 PACs.

He was speaking at the first Sehkarita Sammelan or National Cooperative Conference here. The Ministry of Cooperation was formed in July this year.

Addressing the gathering comprising over 2,100 representatives of different cooperatives and nearly 6 crore online participants, Shah said some people wonder why the Centre created this new ministry as the cooperatives are a state subject.

Shah said there could be a legal response to it, but he does not want to “get into this argument”.

The Centre, he stressed, will cooperate with states and “there will be no friction”.

“We will work with all states to take forward the cooperative movement,” he said, and added the Ministry of Cooperation has been formed to strengthen and modernise the sector.

On the proposed new cooperative policy, Shah said a policy was brought in 2002 by the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and now the Modi government will start working on a new policy.

Stressing that the cooperative movement was more relevant today than ever, Shah said cooperatives can contribute a lot in the development of the country.

According to him, the cooperatives will play a crucial part in making India a USD 5 trillion economy.

Referring to the problems being faced by cooperatives on taxation front and other issues, Shah said he was aware of the concerns and assured that there would be no injustice towards them.

Reasi Police has arrested two brothers accused of kidnapping and rape after 19 years. Both have been identified as Abdul Rashid and Makhna son Mian Kharian, resident of Barnaili Thillu Tehsil Mahor Reasi. In 2002, Mahor police had registered a case of kidnapping and rape against both the accused. He kidnapped the woman and kept her with him, and raped her every day.

Reasi police said that both the accused fled away as soon as the case was registered in the police station. Both of them changed their disguise and were living from one place to another. This is the reason why it was difficult to arrest them. Meanwhile, after the investigation proved the case, a charge sheet was presented against them in the court in 2003. The court, on 10/09/2004, issued an order of arrest against both the accused.

The Reasi police team led by SSP Reasi Shailendra Singh made an elaborate plan and laid a trap to arrest the absconding accused. The police succeeded in their strategy, and both hardcore and long-running criminals were arrested. Police officials said that evidence had been collected against both the accused, and soon both will be produced before the court.
