Here 24-hour ultimatum weighing of wheat does not begin, movement across the district
Regarding the farmers sitting on silos waiting for the weighing of wheat, the District Congress has warned the district administration that if the weighing of the farmers' wheat does not start within 24 hours, agitations will be organized across the district. District Congress Committee President Kamal Patel said that there is no gunny on wheat weighing centers and silos, in which case the wheat of the farmers is not being weighed. He has demanded the district administration to arrange immediate gunny bags.
Neither drinking water arrangements nor food at weighing centers
Patel said – Farmers across the district are facing many problems due to lockdown. In such a situation, due to lack of gunny bags at wheat weighing centers, wheat is not being procured for the last 4 to 5 days. Farmers are engaged in lines at a temperature of 40 degrees, the same weighing centers have neither drinking water nor food. The farmer has been waiting for the turn of his wheat-hungry thirst for four to five days. The District Congress Committee has warned that if the weighing of the wheat of the farmers is not started by arranging gunny bags in 24 hours, then there will be agitations across the district with the farmers.
