Chandigarh, November 21

AAP MLA from Kotkapura and state kisan wing president Kultar Singh Sandhwan today wrote to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, urging him to take immediate steps to ensure a hassle-free supply of urea to farmers so as to enable them to take up sowing of wheat on time.

In his letter, Sandhwan stated that the farmers were facing an acute shortage of urea due to the suspension of freight trains, leading to delay in the sowing of wheat.

Sandhwan said he had visited a number of villages and found how farmers were facing hardship in getting the adequate urea supply, adding that they were being subjected to wait for days to get the fertiliser, while at times they had to return empty-handed.

He said farmers required about 8 to 9 lakh tonnes of urea but the supply had gone down by 35 per cent. — TNS
