Ara:  Under the banner of Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Mahasangh (ABKM), a ‘Kisan Mahapanchayat’ was held on November 15 in front of the office of Bhojpur District Magistrate (DM) under the leadership of Tarari MLA Sudama  vember Prasad, member, national executive committee, ABKM. Over five hundreds male and female participated at the Kisan Mahapanchayat.

Addressing the gathering, Sudama Prasad lashed out at the central and state governments saying both of them are  anti-farmers. He said that PM Narendra Modi had assured the farmers at the time of 2014 LS polls to increase the support price of paddy one and half time of the existing price if his party was voted to power but he did not stick to his promise and the farmers feel cheated.

Prasad said that the National Price Control Commission had said last year that the price of one quintal of paddy must  be at least Rs 1,600 but both the government fixed the  support price at Rs 1,470 that too without any bonus. He added that in Punjab the government procures paddy by opening purchase counter at every village as soon as harvesting starts. He added that the Punjab government procures paddy from ‘bataidar’ farmers and they do not to produce any paper for that. He asked the state government to adopt Punjab government model and procure paddy from the ‘bataidar’ farmers. He also demanded of the state government to announce Rs 2,500 support price for paddy besides Rs 500 bonus per quintal.

Prasad said that the Narendra Modi government played foul in the name of checking black money as it was, in fact,trying to help the corporate houses.

  1. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth
    enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine
    Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
    I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share.
    Appreciate it!
