Hyderabad: Demanding that the State government check sale of seed in black-market, the Bharatheeya Kisan Morcha leaders staged a sit-in in the chamber of Agriculture Commissioner.

They complained that black marketers were selling the seed for Rs. 2,200 per packet by creating artificial scarcity. The leaders sat in the chamber for over two hours demanding that the Commissioner, Mr Sunil Sharma, who was attending ‘rythu sadassu’ to answer them.
Pacifying the BKS leaders, the Additional Commissioner, Mr Balaram Naik, has assured that the Agriculture Department would directly supply the seed to the farmers.
