The central government has suddenly attacked the interests of farmers and traders by limiting the storage limit of pulses. Due to less storage of pulses, another farmers will be forced to sell their pulses at throwaway prices. On the other hand all the other people like arhattis, bookkeepers, laborers etc. will also suffer.

Organization secretary Pris Wadhwa accused the state government of betrayal and said that in the procurement policy of wheat in the last Rabi season, a commission of Rs 50 per quintal was promised to the arhtiyas. But the government is paying commission at the rate of Rs 46 per quintal.

On the call of the state level Arhtiya union head Rajnish Chaudhary, all the arhtiyas stopped the work in the mandi. No crop was auctioned and all the members of the Sangh have shown unity by keeping their shops closed. The government should reconsider the limit of storage of pulses by taking the Arhti union into confidence.
If there may be abundance of pulses in the market in the coming few days, then the price is also bound to fall. This is the reason that on Friday, on the call of Rajasthan Trade Board, all the grain markets of Haryana state were kept closed. No trading has been done. There has been a complete strike in all the grain markets of Karnal district. Here, some other arhtiyas say that these days there is silence in the grain markets anyway, because there is neither wheat nor paddy season. Only some farmers reach the mandis to sell the stored crops, they have definitely faced problems in the crop.
