Abohar, October 25

Dreams for a separate kinnow mandi in the new grain market complex will soon turn into reality, as Rs 5 crore has been allocated to construct the same. Abohar has 65 per cent share in the state’s fruit growing capacity, but the promise to develop separate yards has not been fulfilled in the past 13 years.

District Youth Congress former president Sandeep Jakhar said the previous SAD-BJP government had completely neglected the new grain market even when it contributed crores of rupees to the state marketing board exchequer whereas the ruling dispensation had sanctioned Rs 64.45 crore for renovating the grain market complex.

Flaying former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and SAD chief Sukhbir Badal, Jakhar said despite being a Food Processing Minister, Harsimrat did nothing for the fruit growers and other farmers. Besides, the Badals were not in a position to explain why their government in the state hadn’t released even a rupee to develop the kinnow mandi, he said. — OC
