Khattar assures Punjab ryots govt bound to buy all millet

Khattar assures Punjab ryots govt bound to buy all millet

Chandigarh, Nov 28 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar Saturday assured the millet growing farmers of the state that the State Government is committed to buy every a single grain of their millet crop.  

He said the Deputy Commissioner will make adequate procurement arrangements only after conducting a survey of millet sown by the millet producing farmers of their respective districts and further verifying the findings.
The Chief Minister said this while interacting with the mediapersons after presiding over the meeting of District Public Relations and Grievances Committee held in Gurugram Saturday.
The Chief Minister informed that millet is being purchased at the rate of Rs. 2150 per quintal in the grain markets of Haryana, while in the neighbouring state of Rajasthan, millet is being sold very cheap at the rate of Rs. 1300. That is why complaints about millet procurement from these states being sold in the State Mandis in the name of farmers’ of Haryana are being received.
Mr Khattar said the procurement millet coming from the neighbouring state will not be allowed in the Mandis of Haryana, but the State Government is committed to procure the millet of Haryana farmers. Farmers need not worry about this, he said.
The Chief Minister informed that in Haryana, last year, three lakh metric tonnes of millet was procured by government agencies. So far, seven lakh metric tonnes of millet have already been procured. He said earlier farmers used to keep millet for their home use as well, but this time due to the good price they have sold that stock too.
