Jeypore.August 1: Secretary of Communist Party,  Koraput district Mr.Judhister Roulo alleged that the millers of the district forced the farmers for distress sale of the paddy.
He informed to our reporter that he has submitted a memorandum to the Koraput Collector demanding stringent action against millers who are forcing farmers for distress sale. In the memorandum he also stated that sufficient fertilizers not available in the district so farmers are suffering a lot. He alleged that due to lack of coordination between agriculture and irrigation wings the farmers not getting sufficient water to their fields which effected the crop production. Further he demanded to pay the compensation announced by the Government for crop damage due to untimely rains in the year 2010 to the farmers. Some Adivasies who got the compensation for the damaged crop are running from pillar to post for en-cashing the cheques. He demanded to take immediate action to help the farmers as well as Adivasi farmers.
