Plenty of rain, plenty of winds, plenty of excellent quality soil and plenty of hard working people, however the one thing that the state has lacked since time immemorial is infrastructure and support for the mainly agrarian people of the state.
A quick look through the position of the state shows why the state is yet to develop in what has become second nature to people of the region – agriculture. The state lacks a MSP for agricultural goods, lacks cold storage as well as a vision for the future. Most farmers within the state follow single cropping while the rest of the country does at least two per year.
