Narendra Modi Govt Intentionally Created Urea Shortage in M.P., Rajasthan: Ashok Gehlot
He said that rakes of urea meant for Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan were knowingly diverted to Haryana by the Centre.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has reportedly said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the centre artificially created a urea shortage in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
“The shortage of urea in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh has been artificially created because they (the centre) knew that government is changing (in the two states). They knowingly diverted the rakes of urea of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh to Haryana,” Gehlot told the press during the swearing-in ceremony of his cabinet, reported Hindustan Times.
“We are getting it checked as how it was done and later will decide what to do,” he added.
“Instructions have been given that there should be no problem to farmers in regard to urea in any district,” he said, adding that three rakes of urea were on their way and five more would be arriving soon.
He also said that his government would work towards good governance, “The bad governance of BJP has come to an end and it is our first duty that we set good governance – what is the situation of law and order, corruption issues, farmers’ problems, employment to youth, problems of labourers and poor, all these comes in good governance,”
Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath had written to the Centre about the state not receiving its due supply of urea.
