Imphal, July 15:

International Peace and Social Development (IPSA) in a press release today ridiculed the constant call of Manipur as an Agriculture land by law makers and the Agriculture Department, whilst ignorant to the plight of the farmers of the state. IPSA has termed the Dept.’s decision to distribute fertilizers only to those farmers who can submit their land patta at this time of Covid-19 crisis and busy sowing season, as inappropriate. The Agriculture dept. will have to take the blame for shortage of fertilizers to common farmers while it allow easy access to fertilizers for people with connections to Ministers and MLAs, the press release further added.
The organization warned of intense agitation in collaboration with the farmers if the Department due to its failure to estimate fertilizer requirement in the state and poor supply to the farmers, lead to a situation of poor food grain production and high price rise in future.
