In this video, Gujarat farmer leader Kisan Congress chairman Palbhai Ambalia’s reaction to the changed rules in buying chickpeas at support prices has made a serious allegation in the video that the Gujarat BJP Vijay Rupani government is not a farmer protector but a farmer eater.
What is the need to issue a new circular in purchase of chickpeas at support price …. ??? Farmers saved chickpeas for three months now the government has changed the rules of procurement.
Why does the government change the rules in procurement at support price every fortnight … ?? Farmers’ chickpeas are rotting now.
The cost of transporting 27 mounds of chickpeas is higher than the labor cost of loading and unloading.
The Rupani government subsidy to farmers increases the cost. The mold is more expensive than gold. The Kisan Congress has demanded that all the chickpeas be procured from the farmers.
Looking at the policy of the government towards the farmers, the question arises whether the government is farmer oriented or farmer oriented ….. ????
Chickpea is one of the most important winter pulses in Gujarat. Chickpea is cultivated in about 1.50 lakh hectares in the state and its average yield is about 885 kg. Most of the chickpea cultivation in Gujarat is based on stored monsoon moisture based non-irrigated crop mainly in Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Surendranagar, Dwarka and Kheda districts, Bhal area and Ghed area of Junagadh while irrigated chickpea is cultivated in very few areas. But seeing the importance of chickpea variety and its value added importance, this crop has started its cultivation in Dahod, Panchmahal, Bharuch, Navsari, Kheda and Vadodara districts and the area under cultivation has been increasing year by year.
