Don’t sell other states’ wheat : Bhartiya Kisan Union to agents

Expressing concern over the large quantity of wheat purchased from other states at lower prices being brought to Punjab for sale at MSP with the connivance of certain arhtiyas, Bhartiya Kisan Union (Lakhowal) has warned unscrupulous elements against the practice.

BKU general secretary Harinder Singh Lakhowal said the imported produce purchased by government agencies through dubious dealings by corrupt traders and arhtiyas was leaving Punjab farmers high and dry even before they could bring their harvest to mandis. “The illegal sale of wheat is leaving Punjab farmers at the mercy of traders, forcing them to sell their crop at lower rates than the MSP,” Lakhowal said, urging arhtiyas to support farmers instead of hurting their interests when they were protesting against the farm laws.
