The minister who inspected APMC market at Gundlupet in the district on Wednesday said “It has been already directed to the officials to ensure hassle free transportation of agricultural produces to Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Despite this, if the farmers and traders are facing trouble it can be brought to my notice”.

When the farmers brought to his notice that they are not getting a better price for their produce, the minister who expressed his solidarity with the farmers said ” Such fluctuation in prices should be avoided as only middlemen will be benefitted at the cost of farmers. APMC should initiate action and orders in this regard will be issued from Assistant Commissioner and Tahsildar”.

The minister reiterated that cold storage for APMC here will be sanctioned at the earliest.

MLA C S Niranjan Kumar, Additional Deputy Commissioner Anand and other officers were present.
