Abhay Singh Chautala, chief secretary-general of the INLD and MLA of Ellenabad, said that due to frostbite and cold spells in the past few days, up to 70 percent of hectares of Bhiwani, Hisar, Sirsa, Charkhi Dadri and Mahendragarh, the main mustard-growing areas, have increased in the mustard crop was damaged, which was also mentioned in a report published by the Ministry of Agriculture. At the same time, the gram crop in Hisar district suffered widespread damage as mercury fell below zero in many places. The farmers are forced to protest for the damaged crops and are demanding special girdawari from the government as compensation.
He said that while the state’s farmers’ crops have been damaged by frost and cold spells, the sugarcane-growing region’s farmers have long been demanding an increase in the price of sugarcane. Farmers are forced to agitate across the state to raise the price of sugar cane. But it is very unfortunate that the farmers are not heard in the BJP coalition government. What can be more evidence that the BJP coalition government is anti-farmer than that the farmer has been agitating in the bitter cold for compensation for his damaged crops and the hike in the price of sugar cane and the coalition government has gone deaf and dumb. In the BJP coalition government, all classes are suffering, including farmers, workers, small traders and white-collar workers. The farmer is facing a financial crisis due to crop damage and non-rising sugarcane prices.
Abhay Singh Chautala demanded immediate compensation of 50,000 rupees per acre for damaged crops and 450 rupees per quintal for sugar cane Price the farmer is demanding his right and no bailout.
