B’NGIR AAP TO HOLD DEMO IN BHUBANESWAR Monday, 10 July 2017 | PNS

The Aam Aadmi Party Balangir unit would hold a demonstration at PMG Square I Bhubaneswar on July 17 demanding immediate reopening of the closed sugar mill at Deogaon, waiving of agricultural loan of farmers, and declaration of Minimum Support price (MSP) of paddy at Rs 3,000 per quintal as part of the party’s State-wide Krushak Adhikar stir.

This was announced at a Press conference by party district coordinator Ajay Das on Sunday.
During the election campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had assured to implement the MS Swaminathan Committee report, but the Centre has now increased the paddy MSP by only Rs 80 making it a total Rs 1,530, Das pointed out.

“We demand reopening of the Deogaon sugar mill. A few days ago, a notice to recover its due was pasted there. Another agency has gone to court to get its due. The administration has invited only big people and did not invite us to hold discussion. We demand immediate opening of the mill, on which at least 1,000 sugarcane farmers’ families depend,” Das said further.
