State Congress president Kumari Selja has questioned the new conditions for giving paddy to rice millers for custom
She accused the BJP-JJP government of harassing people during the pandemic. She said after the lathicharge on farmers and labourers in Kurukshetra, other sections were on target.
Selja said new conditions had been imposed as part of a conspiracy to harass rice millers. If these new conditions were implemented, farmers and rice millers would suffer, she said.
“They will face difficulty in selling paddy,” she stated. She said the government wanted to give paddy to only 600 out of 1,400 rice mills.
Selja said it was clear that the government was deliberately harassing rice millers. She said the state Congress was with rice millers and farmers.
She claimed that if the government policy was not changed soon, rice millers could refuse to purchase paddy, which would directly affect farmers as they would have trouble in selling the crop.
