Dharmagarh : Farmers Stage Road Blockade


Dharmagarh(Samaya Bureau):Vehicular movement was badly hampered on Nabarangpur-Bhawanipatna road today after local farmers blocked the National Highway-26 near Moter Chhak by placing paddy sacks on the road. Hundreds of farmers were protesting over delay in procurement of paddy crops.

The agitating farmers staged the road blockade alleging that the 71 local market yards have not been procuring paddy for the past three days.

The delay in procurement coupled with the onset of monsoon in the district has aggravated the plight of the farmers who feared about not getting proper values of their agricultural produce.
