Dharna at Hisar mandi

Tribune News Service

Hisar, September 30

Enraged over the non-procurement of paddy, farmers staged dharna at the new grain market in Uklana town of the district on Wednesday.

The agitated farmers said that they have brought the paddy produce to the mandi after the government announced the start of procurement on September 25. But there are no arrangements for the procurement of their produce in the grain market.

They said that they have been staying at the market for the past couple of days with their produce but the authorities are not cooperating with them.

The farmers raised anti-government slogans during the dharna at the grain market. They said that the claim of the state government to purchase every grain on MSP has fallen flat at the start of the procurement season.

Police force was deployed at the grain market to ensure law and order. Barwala SDM Rajesh Kumar, DSP Rohtas Singh and SHO Sukhjit Singh reached the grain market to placate the agitated farmers. The traders and labourers engaged in the procurement process also extended their support to the farmers. The local Congress and INLD leaders also supported the agitated farmers.
