”Amul Man”, Dr Verghese Kurien passes away
He was 90 years old and is survived by wife and daughter.
Kurien, who took India from being a milk-deficient country to the world’s largest milk producer, is recognized as the father of white revolution and the man who started ‘operation flood’, besides making the Amul dairy brand a household name.
GCMMF chairman M S Sodhi had reached the hospital, sources said.
Kurien’s 90th birthday was celebrated in a big way at his residence in Anand by the GCMMF on November 26 last year.
