BJD to launch week-long protest demanding paddy MSP hike

Bhubaneswar, 24/06/2017 ( Odisha Samachar / Abhisek Mohanty )- : The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) on Saturday announced that it will launch a week-long state-wide protest from July 10 against the Centre’s decision to increase paddy minimum support price (MSP) by a mere Rs 80 per quintal.

According to party’s vice-president Debi Prasad Mishra, “The BJP in its election manifesto had promised to increase the MSP of paddy to one and a half time of the production cost but it has failed to implement the same. So, the party has decided to stage demonstrations and protest meetings across all the 314 blocks of the state for two hours on every working days from June 10 to 18 demanding to increase the MSP of paddy to Rs 2, 930 per quintal.”
