Three days after Haryana began procuring the rabi crops, former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda Saturday accused the state authorities of dysfunction in mandis.
“Farmers who are reaching the market with their crops are being harassed as the government is making excuses that the web server is down. Farmers are being told that only persons who will get the message (from official web portal) can come to the mandis to sell their crops. Where will farmers go if they have already harvested their wheat and they haven’t got the message? Will he take his harvested crop to his home and then to the mandis? This will double his labour and transport costs. This process has been adopted by the government to harass the farmers. The government should immediately procure the crops being taken by farmers to the mandi,” Hooda stated.
The Leader of Opposition additionally slammed the federal government’s choice of lowering the moisture content material in wheat from 14 to 12 per cent.
“Aim of this move is to avoid paying MSP and this is why government has decided to reduce the recommended amount of moisture. Also, earlier the permissible level for mixed quantity (rye, mustard, chaff, etc.) before weighing was 0.75 per cent in a quintal which has now been reduced to 0.50 per cent. This will cause heavy economic losses to the farmers. The government should immediately withdraw this decision,” Hooda stated.
Referring to different points together with unemployment fee in Haryana, Hooda stated, “About 45,000 posts of teachers are lying vacant. In schools, about 50 per cent of the posts of headmasters and principal are lying vacant. According to a report, 54 per cent of the schools in the CM’s district Karnal do not have head teachers. Nearly one lakh applicants who have passed HTET have been waiting for JBT recruitment for 7 years, but the BJP government in Haryana has not carried out a single recruitment in its term. Against this, more than 20,000 JBTs were recruited during the Congress term. It is clear that the government has made up its mind to hand over education completely in private hands.”
Hooda stated if authorities doesn’t recruit academics, then variety of kids in colleges will cut back additional and this can be used as an excuse to shut them. “Recently, the government announced closure of 1,057 schools. Government’s job is to build schools, not close them. Government’s job is to provide affordable education to every child.,” he stated, including Haryana has as soon as once more topped the CMIE report with 28.1 per cent unemployment fee.
