The leaders of Bangladesh Communist Party (CPB-Marxist) on Saturday urged the government to purchase paddy directly from farmers.
"Our farmers are frustrated as they aren't getting fair price of their paddy. They aren't even getting their production cost. The government must purchase paddy directly from farmers at Tk 1,200 per maund," CPD General Secretary Dr MA Samad said at a human chain at Jatiya Press Club.
Samad, also coordinator of Ganatantrik Bam Oikya, claimed that farmers do not get fair prices because of corruption of government officials.    -UNB
