Chandigarh, June 4 (UNI) With the paddy sowing season about to commence, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has called for immediate supply of DAP fertiliser to Punjab.
The Chief Minister spoke to the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister on this issue this morning.
Informing this to mediapersons here, Mr Badal said due to the Gujjar agitation in neighbouring Rajasthan, the supply of DAP from Kandla port in Gujarat had not yet reached Punjab.
Refering to his discussion with Railway Minister Lalu Yadav a few days back, the Chief Minister said that the Union Minister had promised to transport DAP from Kandla by rail. However so far the fertiliser had not yet reached the state, he added.
