Responding to a request made by farmers of Khoijuman village in Manipur to make adequate arrangements for availability of fertilisers, officials of Brahmaputra Valley Fertilizer Corporation Ltd (BVFCL) have assured to fulfil their request.
Farmers Association for Inhesion Reformation (FAIR) president Ch Khogendro Singh said the farmers of Khoijuman have not been availing subsidised urea fertilisers despite the fact that the village is considered one of the largest vegetable producers in the state.
The highly irate farmers had approached BVFCL, Namrup Assam seeking adequate arrangement for availability of urea fertilizers.
The request was made jointly by the Farmers Association for Inhesion Reformation, Khoijuman; Khoijuman Mamang Farmer Organisation; Farmers Development Organisation, Khoijuman and Khoijuman Vegetable Farmers Organisation.
He said that CMD of BVFCL, Siba Mohanty himself visited Khoijuman village in Bishnupur district on Saturday (July 9) to inspect urea scarcity in the village.
The farmers shared the present situation of non-availability of urea. Taking the opportunity of interaction, the said request was made to give sufficient quantity of urea whenever it is required. In response to it, the CMD immediately assured to provide adequate amounts of urea to farmers of Khoijuman.
He expressed his gratitude for taking swift response to the BVFCL team.
