Farmers’ agitation: Govt formers inter-Ministerial panel

5/11/2018 at 3:44 PM


Bhubaneswar: The State Government today constituted a panel of Ministers headed by Finance Minister Shashi Bhusan Behera to examine the demands made by agitating farmers.

Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy and Co-operation Minister Surya Narayan Patra are other members of the panel.

Meanwhile, the Naba Nirman Krushak Sangathan, a body spearheading the farmers movement in the State demanding price, pension and prestige for farmers, said that formation of inter-Ministerial committee is an attempt to cheat them as the press release issued by committee doesn’t mention anything about pension to farmers.

Notably, hundreds of farmers who were coming to Bhubaneswar from different directions to hold a massive rally in the State capital to put pressure on the Government were barred by police at different entry points from entering Bhubaneswar.
