Here, the center gave a shock to MP
According to media reports, the central government reduced the quota for urea supply to Madhya Pradesh by nearly two lakh metric tonnes. Earlier, the demand for urea for Rabi season was reduced from 18 lakh MT to 15 lakh 40 thousand MT. This will have a direct impact on those farmers, who have been expecting rabi crops after the kharif crops have fallen due to extreme rainfall and floods. Sensing the need of the farmers, Chief Minister Kamal Nath has written to the Central Government to raise the demand and supply of urea.
In view of the excessive rainfall in the state, the Agriculture Department had assessed the state and asked the Central Government to provide 18 lakh metric tonnes of urea for the Rabi season, but after much discussion, the demand of two lakh 60 thousand metric tons was reduced for the entire season 15 lakh 40 thousand metric tonne quota has been fixed.
