Kalaburagi, Jan 13: Tur growers of six districts in Kalyan Karnataka region on Wednesday expressed concern as government agency sold the old stock of Tur below Minimum Support price (MSP ) amid the new Tur procurement period.

According to the Karnataka Pranta Raith Sangh President Sharanabasappa Managashetty, the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (NAFED) has started stalling last year's Tur stocks in the open market below the MSP and this has become a major concern among the Tur growers.

Mr Managashetty said 'the NAFED is selling last year's old Tur stock at pricing ranging from Rs 5,300 to Rs 5.800 per quintals in the open market which has created a situation where farmers are forced to compete with the government in the open market.'

Some sections of Tur farmers fear that traders might buy their crops at lower prices from NAFED and sell it back to the government posing as farmers, he said.

The Centre Government has fixed Rs 6,000 per quintal as the MSP for Tur for 2020-21, up from last fiscal which was Rs 5,800 and this year the state government plans to buy 20 quintals at the new MSP from each farmer, the registration process for the same has started.

Jewargi MLA, Dr Ajay Dharm Singh has strongly criticised state government for this anti farmers behaviour and demanded immediate withdrawal of selling old stock of Tur from government agencies and announced the initiative for Tur growers in the region.
