"A decision was taken at the meeting that the speaker will soon write to the President of India seeking his appointment. Since the assembly had earlier passed a resolution that the support price of paddy should be fixed at Rs 2930 per quintal (for common paddy), we will submit a memorandum in this regard," senior BJD chief Sanjay Das Burma mentioned.

"Because of the Centre's assurance to increase the MSP about one and a half time of the cost of production, we were waiting for the decision. We are not satisfied with the Rs 200 hike. So we have decided to apprise the President of India about it," Mishra mentioned.

Farmers' organisations mentioned the Centre may not consider the call for to revise it again since the Centre has already hiked the MSP for the 2018-19 kharif yr.


Congress chief whip Tara Prasad Bahinipati got here down heavily on the BJP for skipping the home committee assembly.
