Thiruvananthapuram, Nov. 24: Dr Verghese Kurien Memorial Hall, built by Trivandrum Regional Cooperative Milk Producers Union (TRCMPU) of Milma at its headquarters here as a tribute to the Father of India’s White Revolution, was opened today.
Inaugurating the facility at Ksheera Bhavan at Pattom, TRCMPU Administrative Committee Convener Shri N Bhasurangan said over the decades Milma has worked hard to fulfil the vision of Dr Kurien for the uplift of farmers and empowering women in rural areas.
