Even though the central and state governments are claiming that fertilizers are available, the ground reality is something else. The problem of fertilizer shortage is that farmers have been forced to protest on the streets. The latest case has come to the fore in Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh. The farmers here have to struggle a lot for a sack of manure. From morning till evening, the farmer has to stand in line at the fertilizer distribution center. On the other hand, black marketing of fertilizers is going on indiscriminately through ‘Chor Darwaza’. Now even a video of black marketing of fertilizers is going viral on social media.
According to the information, the video of black marketing is of the fertilizer godown located behind the Badarwas Municipal Council office. It can be seen in this video that the market is decorated with manure bags. Taking advantage of the night, the sacks of fertilizers are being easily sold in black. Although the price of DAP compost bag has been fixed at Rs 1350, but in Blackon it is being sold from Rs 1700 to Rs 1900. In such a situation, helpless farmers are forced to buy expensive fertilizers. Despite this, the responsible officials do not even know about this fertilizer market decorated at night.
Farmers are in line all day long
Let us tell you that there is shortage of fertilizers in Shivpuri district for a long time, due to which the farmers are facing problems. Farmers stand in queues everyday for hours at the fertilizer distribution centers across the district. Despite this, they are not getting fertilizers. And on the one hand, fertilizer is being sold to the farmers at an expensive price by setting up a fertilizer market in the dark of night. At the same time, in this case, Kolaras SDM Brij Bihari Srivastava says that the said video has come to his notice. After investigating the matter, action will definitely be taken against the culprits.
Farmers are worried about a sack of manure
At the same time, in the past, District Collector Akshay Kumar Singh also had a direct dialogue with the common people on Facebook regarding the arrangement of fertilizers. Then he assured the farmers that sufficient quantity of fertilizers is available in the district. But even after his assurance, the farmers are worried for a sack of manure.
