Speaking on the occasion, Maluka said, "In 1992, Manmohan Singh as union finance minister had claimed that these taxes would not be imposed on farmers whereas now as Prime Minister he had imposed them. The agriculture sector is already in loss and farmers are suffering."
All ruling party MLAs and around 2,000 workers from all constituencies of the district will reach here and give a memorandum to the deputy commissioner.

Manufacturers,packaging units of food items flouting laws

Manufacturers of food items here seem to have no fear of law as packaging of home-made snacks and other products is being done without any mention of expiry and manufacturing details. Most shops and bakeries are selling items like chips, cakes, pastries etc in packets which don't mention manufacturing date, expiry date, the  manufacturer's address etc.
