Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder has said the government is planning to build 200 silos across the country to store paddies from marginal farmers.

“The paddies will be purchased from the growers directly, and stored into the silos… so middle men won’t be able to exploit market situation,” he said at a view-exchange meeting held in Mohadebpur upazila of Naogaon on Saturday, reports BSS.

“Paddies will not be purchased from the businesses anymore. Any kind of irregularities in this regard will not be tolerated… tougher action will be taken against those responsible,” he cautioned.

Presided over by Mahadebpur AC Land Asma Khatun, the meeting was attended by district AL leaders, and administration officials of Naogaon.
