The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) today came down heavily on the BJP-led Union Government, alleging that the Centre’s anti-farmer policy will severely affect the farmers of Odisha.
The BJD accused the Centre of not lifting surplus parboiled rice from Odisha, which would adversely burden Odisha and especially the farmers.
“Recently, the Centre sent a letter stating that they would limit the lifting of parboiled rice to the extent of 50% of the original estimates and would not accept any surplus Parboiled rice during Rabi season 2020-21. This anti-farmer decision by the Centre will severely affect the farmers of Odisha”, the BJD said in a statement.
