Sad State of Punjab - importing wheat

Punjab is the biggest supplier of wheat to the country. But much of the wheat atta needed for domestic consumption is imported. Because people want organic and healthy grain for their own family. They know what is exported is drenched with chemicals and cancer causing. Read attached!

Can agri ministry or fssai do something? more

I endorse the view of Desikachari Venugopal. more  
Why do we always want the government to do something ? It's up to the local farmers to follow organic practises the same as people in other states. They have to first restore their soil to natural health. Mr Subhash Palekar has conducted many seminars there on how to do it. They don't have to buy anything - just use their own cow's dung and urine with jaggery and besan. I do that on my farm. more  
Man by nature is greedy. Every body wants maximum out with minimum
input. The subsidy schemes were launched on 1965 as there was scarcity
of food grains in the country. After that, every political party made it a
tool to jack up vote bank by increasing the variety of subsidies. For the
last many years, the there is excess production of food grains/cash crops
leading the wastage in large quantities. Since the Govt. machinery is
non-accountable, no action is taken against any official for unsafe
storage/transportation/theft. To do judicious use of tax payers money,
the Govt. should curtail subsidies on farm inputs by 50% to reduce their
usage which will help the consumers, protect air and water pollution.
Adulteration in any consumable should attract death penalty but due
corruption in Food Regulators/Courts and political interference, the
culprits are rarely punished. more  
Really sad state of affairs caused by competition, undue research on food grains, paid articles used for marketing of unwanted grains by the farmers of Punjab and Haryana while the farmers of these states import for themselves organically produced grains. How selfish are the Indian farmers today - real Desh Drohis. I pray and hope these farmers of agrarian states will stop producing commercial inorganic or genetically modified food grains and save their own countrymen from likely diseases and misery. more  
Perhaps FM knows import and export policy. more
