Farmers body urges govt to lift ban on cotton exports

Several Bhartiya Kisan Sangh (BKS) members are now in Delhi to take part in the 70-day long Kisan Swaraj Yatra which is in its last phase now.

The farmer's body has been urging the government to remove the ban on cotton exports, and its members are going to approach the Union Agriculture Minister with the same demand.

Further, the union even asserted that the government by imposing such a ban on cotton exports has served the interest of some of the major industry players constituting the textile lobby, while overlooking the interest of a number of farmers who were left with no other option but to commit suicide owing to their inability to secure adequate prices.

The cultivators are still left with added output of 8.5 lakh cotton bales which could enable them to earn extra Rs 300 to 400 per bale, but as the Centre has imposed a ban on the export of cotton, the cultivators are not being able to cash on this extra income.

However, they are hopeful that the meeting between the BKS members and the Union Agriculture Minister is likely to deliver some positive results.
