Raitha Sangha warns of stir against fertilizer shortage in Kundapur co-op

Posted on Aug 9th, 2011 and filed under General.

UDUPI : The Kundapur Taluk Raitha Sangha has submitted a memorandum to the Deputy

Commissioner requesting for measures to see that adequate quantity of fertilizers was available

in the cooperative societies. The Sangha pointed out that the farming community was facing

hardship due to non-availability of fertilizers in accordance to demand at the Kundapur Taluk

Agricultural Co-operative Society. The Sangha has also warned of a protest outside the DC

office if steps were not taken to fulfill the demand within the next three days.

? As fertilizers are available at a subsidized rate in the co-operative society, it has been

benefitting farmers. But, lack of enough stock, has proved to be a hindrance, forcing farmers

to purchase fertilizers from other outlets at higher prices,? the Sangha said and appealed for

measures to maintain adequate stock of fertilizers in the co-operative.
