Govt will buy potatoes on the basis of its fixed price

Minister said that it is estimated that there may be a fall in the rate of potatoes in the coming times. But still the government will buy potatoes on the basis of its fixed price. With this, now farmers and traders can buy and sell potatoes in other districts. Yogi Adityanath's government is doing everything possible to solve all the problems of the farmers. Farmers do not need to panic, do not get misled by anyone. The government has sufficient resources. If needed, the central government will set up more purchases.

Akhilesh tweets about problems of potato farmers

SP chief Akhilesh Yadav attacked the BJP government by tweeting and said, "Potato will change the government this time." He tweeted about the problems being faced by the potato farmers of the state. He said that in the BJP governments which give the slogan of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas, votes are taken from Dalits and backward classes but representation is given only to upper castes. BJP does not give rights and leadership to Dalits or OBCs. 

Akhilesh said BJP makes lofty promises to Dalits and backward class people but shows its true colors as soon as it wins the elections. Dalits and backward people are kept away from the mainstream of power.
