To protest against the rising fuel prices in the country and farm laws, khap panchayat in Haryana has asked the farmers to sell milk at high prices to government co-operative societies from March 1.
A panchayat spokesperson said, We have decided to give milk at the price of Rs 100 per litre. We urge dairy farmers to sell milk at the same price to government cooperative societies. However, to general consumers, milk will still be sold at the normal price of Rs 45-50 per litre.
The decision was taken during a meeting of Satrol khap at Narnaud in Hisar. Ramnivas, an office-bearer of the Satrol Khap, which has influence in nearly 42 villages of Hisar and Jind districts, told The New Indian Express: If the government keeps on increasing the price of fuel, we will also increase the price of milk. Roughly, one quintal of milk is procured by the government on a day from one village. There will be no change in prices for the normal people.
