Fatehgarh Sahib, October 18

Members of farm organisations today gheraoed four trucks transporting paddy from UP near Sirhind town.

A large number of farmers, led by Baljit Singh Bhutta, former chairman, Zila Parishad, reached the spot and started raising slogans. They alleged their worst fears had come true with paddy from other states being transported to the state mandis. "Rice millers and traders in connivance with officials have started bringing paddy from other states by evading taxes. Only state farmers should be allowed to sell the crop in mandis," the farmers said. — OC
