Govts pushing agriculture to verge of destruction: Kissan Board Pakistan Secretary General Malik Ramzan Rohari warned on Tuesday that the agriculture that played the role of backbone of countrys economy was on verge of destruction because of rulers disinterest. Chairing a meeting of office-bearers of KBP South Punjab chapter, he pointed out that the monitoring system in agriculture sector got completely suspended as a result of which the price of agricultural inputs shot up horribly. He regretted that the farmers were in a state of paralysis. This is high time that you seek your right. The time has come to take to the roads and jolt the rulers otherwise they will deprive us of all of our belongings, he added. He said that despite all difficulties the farmers succeeded in preparing their crop but now no one was ready to give them appropriate price. He lamented that the price being offered to the cotton growers was much lower than the production cost. He demanded of the government to direct the TCP to start cotton procurement so that the growers could get reasonable price of their produce. He pointed out that the prices of Urea fertilizer had gone very high due to absence of any proper check on the dealers. He claimed that the Urea prices went up because of agriculture departments monitoring officials connivance with the dealers. He asked the government to introduce an alternate monitoring mechanism and ensure ban on inter-district movement of fertilizer. He declared that a delegation of KBP led by central president Sardar Zafar Hussain would soon hold talks with the government on above mentioned issues. He said that it was the height of ineligibility that the government had abolished ministries but the departments still existed. He said that the personal financial gains stood atop the priority list of the rulers and not the country as a result of which the country was faced with financial crisis while the rulers prospered.
