Neha Kesharwani, Raipur. Bharatiya Janata Party’s State General Secretary OP Chaudhary held a press conference on the allegations leveled against the Prime Minister by the Congress government and demanded a white paper. Chaudhary said, the government should issue a white paper and tell where it was sold if it bought paddy? Former Agriculture Minister Chandrashekhar Sahu also demanded the government to issue a white paper regarding the purchase of paddy.
OP Chowdhary said in the press conference, the purchase of paddy in Chhattisgarh is becoming possible with the help of the central government. The BJP claimed that in the last 2 years, 80% of the paddy was procured by the central government. 3/4th payment was done by the center. Rice made from 92 lakh metric tonnes of paddy has been taken from the central quota.
BJP released the figures related to paddy procurement. OP Chaudhary said, the memory of the Agriculture Minister has also decreased with age. In 2021-22, about 48 lakh metric tonnes of paddy was being procured. Challenge the state government that they can do research on this. Paddy is being procured in Chhattisgarh because of the Narendra Modi government.
Describing the figures released by the Agriculture Minister as wrong, OP Chaudhary said, the MSP kept on increasing. Modi ji is continuously increasing the MSP. 18,22,699 farmers of the state are deprived of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi. OP Chowdhary said, the government has lied regarding the purchase of paddy, it will also consider the legal option. The central government does not buy paddy, this is a lie.
