Recently, there is a state of confusion along with resentment among the gardeners regarding fixing the weight of the apple box at 24 kg by the state government. If it is not resolved in time, then a big movement will be organized along with the farmers and gardeners regarding this issue. BJP leader Chetan Bragta said this by issuing a press release. He said that at present the horticulturists are facing many problems, the problems of which they will present before the listed state government. According to today’s system, the gardeners are getting 22 kg money on a 24 kg box. But the gardeners are not able to digest this thing. Under which formula the reduction of 2 kg is being done, the government should tell the gardeners about this in detail.
Chetan Bragta said that without groundwork, without gathering information about facts, such decisions by the government without any discussion are becoming harmful for the gardeners. He said that the government should take a positive decision on this subject according to the suggestion of gardeners, dealers, and traders.
He said that with the kind of chaos that is being seen in the mandis at present, it seems that the jobbers and traders here can also migrate to the outer markets. Because of this, the state will also have to bear the loss of revenue.
That’s why the government is requested to give freedom to the gardeners to sell their produce until the universal carton comes.
Chetan Bragta said that none of the cabinet ministers in the state government from district Shimla is showing any interest in the problems of the gardeners. What is the reason that the cabinet-level ministers in the state government from the apple-dominated area have kept silent on the subject of the 24 kg apple box? While he should have given positive feedback to the state government on this subject keeping in view the sentiments of the gardeners. He said that the Congress leaders who were well-wishers of the gardeners while in the opposition, why have all disappeared despite being in their government today. It seems from the behavior of all these leaders that they have nothing to do with the gardeners.
