With few days left to mark the first anniversary of Article 370 rollback in Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister Narendra Modi government has connected two major vegetable and fruit markets with the national agricultural market thus protecting the farmers from the middlemen.
Official sources in the Jammu and Kashmir administration here said that the Central Government has connected two major mandies of the Union Territory (one each in Jammu and Srinagar) with the National Agricultural Market so that the farmers directly get good prices for their crops and do not have to go to the middlemen for sale.
“It is a big gift to the farmers by the Modi government,” said a farmer at Narwal Mandi here terming it as ‘Achhe Din’ for the fraternity as a celebration on the first anniversary of Article 370 Abrogation.
