Farmers are waiting for the formation of government to sell paddy in Chhattisgarh


Raipur: In Chhattisgarh, a state known as the rice bowl, centers for purchasing crops have opened in the state from November 1. But the surprising thing is that farmers are not coming only to sell the paddy crop. Instead of harvesting the paddy, packing it in sacks and taking it to the market, they are storing it in their homes. You will also be surprised to know the reason behind this.

In fact, in the election environment, BJP and Congress contesting the elections in the state have made big announcements and fixed the price for the purchase of paddy crop. Due to this, out of 45 thousand 832 farmers registered in the state, till now only 116 farmers have sold the paddy crop.

Congress’s announcements for paddy procurement

BJP and Congress have released their respective manifestos for the assembly elections. In these, many promises have been made to the farmers regarding the purchase of more paddy. Where Congress has asked for loan waiver like before. Along with this, it has been said to purchase paddy at 20 quintals per acre. Not only this, the price of paddy has been fixed at Rs 3200.

Farmers of the state are watching whether there will be loan waiver or they will get lump sum money for selling their crops. If Congress forms the government again, there will be loan waiver. This is good for farmers because farmers are more indebted than selling paddy. Whereas BJP has promised to purchase paddy worth Rs 3100 with a lump sum amount. Now it will be interesting to see whose government is formed in the state.
