Farmers made to buy costly urea, says AAP

Bathinda, July 10

Condemning the state government’s order to buy expensive fertilisers only from Markfed, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA and Kisan Wing state president Kultar Singh Sandhwan alleged the government was hell-bent on destroying the rural cooperative societies for the benefit of corporate houses.

He said, “Rural cooperative societies were formed with the financial support of farmers and public. Now, the government wants to loot them through Markfed. These societies independently procure urea and DAP from IFFCO and Markfed and distribute it to the farmers. But now, the government has issued an order to end the independence of these cooperative societies.”— TNS
