It was decided in the panchayat that from March 1, the rate of milk would be Rs 100 a kg. At the same time, a fine of Rs 11 thousand will be imposed on the farmers who do not accept the decision. However, this decision will apply only to milk sold outside or in dairies. This decision will not apply to the people buying in the village.
The farmers said that as the price of oil increases, so will they increase the price of milk. Apart from this, the decision not to allow BJP and JJP leaders to enter the villages will remain in force. Earlier, the United Front officials sitting on the Singhu border had talked about increasing the price of milk. Malkit Singh, District Head of the Indian Farmers Union, said that from March 1, farmers are going to increase the prices of milk, after which the milk sold for Rs 50 a liter will now be sold at double the price i.e. Rs 100 a liter.
Malkit Singh says that the Central Government has made every effort to surround the farmers on all sides by increasing the price of diesel, but the Samyukta Kisan Morcha has taken a strong decision to double the price of milk by breaking it. If the government still does not agree, then in the coming days, we will increase the prices of vegetables by peacefully advancing the movement.
