Farmers of the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha farmers' unions coalition are ready to protest over the issue of not getting appropriate prices for their onion, garlic and potato crops. Bablu Jadhav of the morcha said that, two months ago, the organisation members had shared their problems with MP Shankar Lalwani who helped them reach their concerns to the Union minister for agriculture and minister for commerce.
Jadhav said that, at the mandis the potato prices were too low. The growers demand a hike in these rates. He said that, in 20 districts of the Malwa-Nimar region, there was a similar problem and that, in many parts, the farmers were protesting. If the problem was not resolved, protests would be held in Indore and other cities.
