Chandigarh, June 4 (UNI) With the paddy sowing season about to commence, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has called for immediate supply of DAP fertilizer to Punjab.
The Chief Minister spoke to the Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister on this issue today morning.
Disclosing this to mediapersons here, Mr Badal said that 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 fertilizer had not yet reached the state, he added.
