Cong. MLAs bat for Haryana’s sugarcane farmers

first_imgCongress legislators on Wednesday staged a symbolic protest outside the Assembly complex against the Haryana government, accusing it of ignoring the plight of sugarcane farmers in the State. The MLAs shouted slogans against the State government while holding sugarcane stems in their hands.“Sugarcane farmers are forced to sell their produce in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand because the State-owned and private sugarcane mills in Haryana are not purchasing their produce at the assured price,” alleged Congress leader Kuldeep Sharma.Later in the House, while participating in the debate on the Governor’s Address, Mr. Sharma raised the issue to which Agriculture Minister O.P. Dhankar reacted sharply, saying that the Congress was trying to create an issue. Separately, Mr. Dhankar said that the government has been working actively for the past three years to develop an international horticulture and vegetable market over 600 acres at Ganaur.last_img read more
