Sugarcane Rate agrowon
Sadabhau Khot Criticizes Raju Shetty : For the last two months, former MP Raju Shetty’s Swabhimani Shetkari Association has been protesting against Rs 400 for the second week of the previous season and Rs 3500 for the current year. Meanwhile, Sadabhau Khot, the head of Ryat Kranti Sangathan and former minister, has entered the fray against Raju Shetty.
At this time, Sadabhau Khot said, ‘If sugarcane gets a price as per Raju Shetty’s demand, I will leave politics thinking that I don’t understand the economics of agriculture,’ and Khot challenged Raju Shetty to retire from politics if he doesn’t pay Rs 3,500.
This year, the production of sugar will also decrease due to the reduction of sugarcane area. Farmers and industrialists will also suffer as the season gets longer. There is also fear of sugarcane going to Karnataka. For this, the manufacturers should come forward to pay the difference of last season Rs.200 and the first installment of Rs.3250 in the current season. A committee has been formed under the leadership of Ramchandra Dange for this demand, and soon this committee will discuss with the factory workers and take a decision.
There is a need to consider the interests of the farmers in the movement rather than just making popular slogans. If someone is misusing the farmers’ movement for their own politics, harming the farmers, it will not be allowed to continue. Also now people are awake.
Therefore, the factory owners should also be aware of this and run the factories, otherwise the time will come to say that cooperative sugar factories were once there.’ Meanwhile, he also mentioned that it is very necessary to cancel the condition of air distance of 20 km between sugar factories to solve the issue of sugar price forever.
