New Delhi: Congress leader Deepender Singh Hooda on Sunday termed the commencement of procurement of kharif crops in Punjab and Haryana from today as “a victory for the farmers” and said the government has failed as they kept postponing the date of procurement.


Speaking to ANI here, Hooda said: “The government kept changing the date of procurement of Kharif crops. But when farmers started agitating against the postponement of the government’s decision, it fixed the date in haste.” “It is a victory for the farmers and they are being paid for their hard work. The government failed as they kept postponing the date of purchase,” the Congress leader said.


Earlier, the central government had postponed the purchase of paddy in Punjab and Haryana from October 1 to October 11.


But amidst protests in Punjab and Haryana over the delay in paddy procurement, Minister of State Ashwini Kumar Choubey informed on Saturday that procurement will start in both the states from today. (ANI)
