SAD asks CM to release Rs 331 cr owed to sugarcane growers by cooperative sugar mills

Chandigarh, June 11 (UNI) The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Saturday asked Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to immediately release Rs 331 crore owed to sugarcane growers by state cooperative sugar mills.
In a statement here, SAD Kisan Wing President Sikander Singh Maluka said the prolonged delay in the release of dues of sugarcane farmers would create a crisis in the farm sector. “Farmers are already reeling under debt and in case the dues are not released immediately farmers will be further indebted. Attempts to make farmers take to growing sugarcane by diverting them from wheat – paddy cycle will also come to naught due to such callousness”, he added.
The SAD leader said private sugar mills should also be taken to task for failing to clear dues of sugarcane farmers. He said as per estimates private mills owed farmers Rs 343 crore. He said a clear cut directive should be issued to both cooperative and private sugar mills to clear the backlog of farmers along with interest quotient.
