Bargarh Farmers Dump Vegetables On Road To Press Demand For Cold Store

Bargarh: Farmers of Bargarh district under the aegis of Jai Kisan Andolan dumped vegetables on the road at the Dus Mile chowk in Sohela block today to press for their demand seeking establishment of a cold store in the district.

After distress sale of paddy by farmers in Bargarh district, the fate of vegetable growers is no different.

On not getting fair prices for their produce, cultivators are either forced to sell vegetables at throwaway prices or leave them to rot in their fields in the absence of buyers and cold store facilities. 

Establishment of a cold store is a long pending demand of the farmers in the district.
