said, adding that attention will have to be given to cultivate local fruits
like ‘dauya’, ‘chalta’, ‘karmocha’, blackberry, ‘lotkan’, ‘barai’ and ‘gab’.
At the same time, steps will have to be taken to increase farming foreign
varieties of fruits strawberry, dragon-fruit, avocado and sweet tamarind in
