Crops lying in the markets, government ignoring farmers: Sushil Gupta –

Chandigarh, October 11 (Trinew)

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) State President and Rajya Sabha MP Dr. Sushil Gupta has strongly cursed the Khattar government for non-purchase of paddy and millet crops lying in the markets, not getting MSP at the time of purchase and not removing sand from farmers’ fields. . He said that the Haryana government is continuously ignoring the farmers. Farmers are sitting in the mandis with their crops, sometimes they do not get gate passes, sometimes they do not have tokens. The details of their portal are never available. In such a situation, farmers are forced to keep their crops in the open in the markets. In a statement issued from Chandigarh on Wednesday, Gupta said that lakhs of tonnes of paddy are lying in the markets of farmers. In many districts, millet crop has not even been procured, but the government is not making arrangements for procurement. The government had made tall claims about the arrangements in the mandis before the commencement of procurement, but due to non-purchase of paddy sometimes citing moisture in the paddy and sometimes citing poor quality of millet, all the claims of the Khattar government were exposed. He said that even after 3 months of the flood disaster, sand is still accumulated on more than 3 thousand acres of land in Karnal, Kurukshetra, Ambala and Fatehabad. The government had also made a plan to remove it, but till now neither the sand has been removed nor compensation for the flood damage has been received. He said that there is no one in the Khattar government to take care of the farmers.
