Farmers clashed with Agriculture Minister Sattar
State Agriculture Minister Abdul Sattar also came yesterday to visit this festival. After talking to the media on this occasion, some farmers asked Minister Abdul Sattar about the price of the onion. What happened to Saheb Kandya’s brother? It’s time to sell onions for less than junk. Last year the price of cotton was 14500, why is it so low now? Many of these questions have been raised by farmers about Minister Abdul Sattar. The Minister of Agriculture said that I will answer all these questions in a speech. We will make all decisions in the interests of farmers. In his speech, he said that the Shinde Fadnavis government is the most capable government in terms of crop yield or price.
Sattar refused to answer direct questions from farmers to the Minister of Agriculture who came to the agricultural exhibition
