Ludhiana, April 5
In response to a call given by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, activists of BKU (Ekta Ugrahan) today laid siege to a FCI godown in Malaud village.
BKU general secretary Sudagar Singh Ghudani said they wanted the government to withdraw the condition of producing jamabandi (of land) for the purchase of wheat. Stressing the need for purchase of all crops at MSP, farmers demanded that provisions be made for strict legal action against those purchasing wheat, paddy and other crops below decided prices.
They also urged the government to ensure all purchase centres, including FCI, remained operational and adequate funding be provided to all procurement agencies. — OC
