Sundargarh: Agitated farmers in Sundergarh district created ruckus at the Ration Card Management System (RCMS) office in Rajamunda & the Bonai LAMPCS protesting acute shortage of fertilizers for crops.
As per reports, hundreds of farmers had gathered at the Bonai LAMPCS and the RCMS office for urea fertilizer. However, without getting fertilizers after waiting for hours, tension erupted and the agitated farmers broke the entrance gate and barged into the premises, informed sources.
Farmers alleged that the officials are deliberately delaying the delivery of fertilizers and making them wait for hours in the crucial time of paddy plantation.
It is alleged that black marketing of urea fertiliser has picked up amid the delay in government supply. We are buying urea from the black marketeers by paying exorbitant prices, alleged the protesting farmers.
Two days ago, farmers in the area had blocked the road protesting against delay in urea distribution. No comments have been received from the officials in the matter.
