Government Rice Mill Marya of Village Soundad under Sadkaarjuni Taluka of Gondia District. Today on August 28, the farmers of the area attacked and staged a protest at Reg. No. 671. On this occasion, around 100 farmers of the area were present with their vehicles.
The farmers who were present on this occasion alleged that a month ago, the said organization took the paddy of the farmers offline. The purchase was being made but now due to some technical reason the authority of the organization has been frozen, the approval of grain purchase to the said organization has been temporarily cancelled
Because of that, it is said that the farmers should take their grains for sale in the organization at village Girola/Heti in the taluka. The organization at Girola has been given a purchase limit of 18 thousand quintals.
It is said that there are 8 to 10 thousand quintals of grain in the godown of the organization at Saundad. Farmers said that only 3 days are left for the organization at Girola/Haiti for grain counting. As the monsoon is also going on, it is not possible because the journey is also long.
On the other hand, farmers have accused. That the association drivers have initially transported the good grain measured by the farmers in the Federation vehicle. Now the grain which is stored in the godown. They are not ours but private traders, they are alleged to be substandard.
There is a lot of adulteration in them. Because of that, the driver of the organization in front of us will not take the grain that we have taken, as a result, the farmers will have to carry the grain. Some farmers were saying that there is no other option but to commit suicide as the farmers are suffering from this problem.
