Fazilka, November 18

Farmers blocked the Fazilka-Ferozepur highway near a flyover on the Ferozepur road today, alleging the private traders' cartel was purchasing the basmati Rs 200 less as compared to the nearby town.

"We are being offered Rs 2,700 per quintal when the same basmati variety is being purchased at Rs 2,900 to 2,950 per quintal in adjoining mandis," alleged Pargat Singh Chackpakhi, district president, BKU (Sidhupura).

Refuting the charge, Arun Dhuria, president, Rice Millers Association, Fazilka, said the rates were offered as per the quality of paddy. — OC
