CM Yogi Adityanath Announces Rs 25 Per Quintal Hike in Sugarcane

In a major decision barely months ahead of the upcoming 2022 Assembly elections, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday announced a Rs 25 per quintal hike in the purchase prices of sugarcane in the state.

Lucknow: The decision of the Yogi Adityanath government also assumes significance, as it came barely a day before the ‘Bharat Bandh’ called by the Samyukt Kisan Morcha.

Addressing a meeting of farmers here organised by the BJP’s Kisan Morcha, CM Adityanath said, “The government has decided that the variety of sugarcane for which Rs 325 per quintal was paid to farmers, that price has been increased to Rs 350, which will be paid to farmers.”

“The government has also decided to increase the price of ordinary sugarcane variety, to Rs 340 (per quintal) up from Rs 315 (per quintal). The government has also decided to hike the value of the ‘anupyukt’ (less yielding) variety of sugarcane by Rs 25 per quintal,” the CM added.
