Raisen. In the agricultural produce market in the district, the price of gram is running at Rs 4000 per quintal, while gram is being purchased at government centers at the rate of Rs 4875 per quintal. Therefore, government procurement centers remain the first choice of farmers. But the tough conditions of quality at government procurement centers have upset the farmers. On Tuesday, a large number of farmers' gram samples were rejected at the Bhamori procurement center. This led to various allegations against the farmers. But this time according to the new guide line that Chana bought, the percentage of tebda in gram should be zero. Whereas, the samples of gram brought by most farmers are being rejected due to mixing of tebras.
When this happened, the farmers created a ruckus. On this, officers of the Civil Supplies Corporation including Tehsildar Ajay Patel and Police Officer-in-Charge Jagdish Singh Sidhu also reached the spot, also heard the farmers' problems, but no solution could be found to the problem. Talk on the new guide line of Chana Bhaiya got stuck. There is no permission to buy chickpea found in it.
