Onion Farmers Make Only 1 Paisa/Kilo And People Still Ask Why They Are Unhappy: Yogendra Yadav

Highlighting the price disparity of rural and urban areas, he also said that the same produce would probably sell for Rs 20 per kilogram in Delhi.

Highlighting the continuing agrarian crisis in the onion-producing district of Nashik in Maharashtra, Swaraj India party national president Yogendra Yadav, on December 21, tweeted the photo of an onion farmer’s earnings.

At Pimpalgaon Mandi in Nashik, an onion farmer, as per Yadav’s tweet, made an earning of only one paisa per kilogram of produce. Yadav also gave a breakdown of this income: 12 quintals of onion, sold at the rate of Rs 151 per quintal; that fetched him a total price of Rs 1812. Removing the truck freight of Rs 1500 and market expenses of Rs 300, the onion farmers were only left with Rs 12 for 12 quintals.

Highlighting the price disparity of rural and urban areas, Yadav also mentioned that the same produce would probably be sold for Rs 20 per kilogram in Delhi, adding, “And people ask why farmers are unhappy.”

Yadav, in a different Facebook post on December 21, also wrote: “Today in Pimpalgaon Mandi, Nashik Maharashtra, we found that the farmer is still selling his crop at loss. And there is a long struggle to make this loss deal profitable. Only the debt waiver cannot for keep farmers happy. Income will have to be guaranteed.”
