Farmers block road in Kalaburagi seeking better MSP for red gram – The Hindu

“The ETG and Adani groups are major importers. The Union government has bought pulses from these firms at ₹ 10,000 a quintal. But, when it comes to buying the crop directly from farmers, it has fixed just ₹ 5,050 a quintal. It clearly shows whose interest the government is protecting,” Maruti Manpade, State president of KPRS, said during the agitation. He demanded minimum support price of ₹ 7,500 a quintal for red gram.
