In the beginning of his address at the inaugural session of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Agriculture Summit 2013 here,Badal said,I thank the greatest leader of the country and Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi for organising a first-of-its-kind summit to address the problems of countrys farmers.
