BJD leaders demand increase in MSP for paddy
BJP has forgotten its poll promises: Naveen Patnaik
The BJD President and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday attended a sit-in of his party here, demanding increase in the minimum support price for paddy and slamming the Modi government for not keeping its promises.
Patnaik said that despite repeated requests to the Centre to raise the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of paddy to 2,930 per quintal, they were ignored. “The BJP came to power with assurance of increasing the Minimum Support Price of food grain as per the Swaminathan formula. I have gone to the Centre many times with this demand, but it has been ignored. It was promised by the BJP in 2014, but they have forgotten their promise after coming to power,” he said.
Patanaik said his government has announced a progressive agricultural programme called ‘KALIA’ that will cost Rs 10,000 crore over three years, further irrigation of 10 lakh hectares of farmland is also nearing completion.“We make the promises and keep them,” he asserted.
Patnaik is scheduled to meet the President of India to seek his immediate intervention on the issue of MSP for paddy.
The sit-in was attended by the Biju Janta Dal (BJD) MPs, MLAs and other leaders and workers from the state at Talkatora Stadium here.
