Jajpur:19/7/17: Hundreds of farmers under the banner of Navnirman Krushak Sangathan (NKS), an Odisha-based farmers’ outfit, today dumped vegetables, pulses, milk and peanuts on road at Chandokhole Chhak in Jajpur district protesting distress sale of their produce.

The farmers of the district, who are battling distress sale of groundnut, pulses, coriander, milk and vegetables, had submitted a memorandum to the Jajpur collector in this regard but it didn’t yield any fruitful solution.
