Govt to build 200 paddy silos to ensure fair price: Majumder

Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder said the government has planned

to build 200 silos across

the country to store the paddies from the marginal farmers.

“The paddies will be purchased from the

growers directly and stored into the silos… so middle men won’t be able to exploit market situation,” he said at a view-exchange meeting held in Mohadebpur upazila of Naogaon

yesterday.

Majumder said, “Paddies will not be purchased

from the businessmen anymore. Any kind of irregularities will not be tolerated… tougher action will be taken against the responsible persons.”

He said the farmers will be beneficiary as the budget of fiscal 2019-20 is a farmer-friendly one.

Later, Majumder planted a mango tree on the Mahishbathan Food Storage premises.

Presided over by AC Land of Mahadebpur Asma Khatun, the meeting was attended by AL leaders and administration officials of Naogaon.
