CPIML Bihar State Secretary Kunal has asked the Govt of Bihar to ensure the supply of required amounts of urea scarcity of which has created a panic situation in the state. In the current year Bihar has received less than 1 lakh metric tonnes of urea. Earlier, unseasonal rains rotted the paddy seeds, crops were damaged and so transplantation could not be done on time; then the floods came causing chaos across the state; and now the urea issue is causing problems.
CPIML MLA Virendra Prasad Gupta has written a letter in this context to the Director Agriculture and other responsible officials of the Govt. Giving the particular example of Western Champaran, he has said that on the basis of Agriculture Department estimates the District needs 13000 metric tonnes of urea in August 2021, but only 1000 metric tonnes of urea had been made available till 18 August.
The CPIML demanded that the government should make every effort to guarantee supply of urea as per requirement in the whole of Bihar including Western Champaran so that crops can be protected.
