Gujarat government diverting fertilisers to industry rather than to farmers
Aug. 7, 2012
“No partiality is being done in allotting fertilisers. Gujarat receives the allotted quota. The state government is diverting all fertilisers to industries rather than providing them to farmers. This has led to scarcity of fertilisers in the state,” said Jena. He also lashed out at the state government for making fertilisers costly in Gujarat. “They are charging Rs10 extra in the name of VAT which has made the fertiliser bag costlier. CM Narendra Modi boasts of being farmer friendly, but his policies are creating troubles for the peasants,” he added.
