A group of farmers today gheraoed four trucks laden with paddy near Rupana village here, claiming the produce was being brought from Uttar Pradesh. The farmers said some private traders were doing this just to make profit.

“The paddy crop is fetching a low price in UP, thus some rice millers are buying the crop from there and in doing so, evading the local market committee fee. We will not release the trucks until strict action is taken in this regard,” said the farmers.

They alleged UP’s paddy would be shown in records as Punjab’s crop, thereby changing the per-acre yield of the crop.

The Rice Millers’ Association has assured farmers of taking action against erring millers. Sarabjit Singh, secretary, Market Committee, Muktsar, said he was yet to receive a complaint in this regard.
