Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh demands government intervention

Malhargarh garlic glut causes price crash

Increased garlic production in the Mandsaur region has led to a crash in price, leaving farmers worried. There have been cases of farmers in Malhargarh dumping sacks of garlic in the open as the prices they are getting are too low. The prices of garlic are so low that farmers cannot even recover the money they had invested in cultivation.

Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday wrote to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, demanding that the state government ensure that farmers get adequate prices.
