New Delhi: While the Corona virus epidemic on one side of the country has created a commotion with increasing cases of being hit by COVID-19, on the other hand, a political pyromania continues in Uttar Pradesh.
The Congress keeps on attacking at every front on the Yogi government of the state. With this Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, General Secretary of Indian National congress who is mostly active from the Congress side has once again came up in this episode. Priyanka has instructed the government on the issue of lack of urea in Uttar Pradesh which has brought up problems to farmers in the state.
Priyanka Gandhi took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to express that farmers are upset due to shortage of urea in many places of UP. Farmers have been standing in queues at most places but most cooperative societies are in a completely exhausted state of urea.
The main function of Urea fertilizer is to provide the plants with nitrogen to promote green leafy growth and make the plants look lush. Urea also aids the photosynthesis process of plants. Since urea fertilizer can provide only nitrogen and not phosphorus or potassium, it’s primarily used for bloom growth.
Priyanka further complained that the farmer also is worried about black marketing. The UP government should immediately intervene and solve the problem of urea shortage as the shortage prevails in most districts of Uttar Pradesh. The result of which is no urea in cooperatives and most private shops due to which farmers are facing a lot of problems.
उप्र की कई जगहों पर यूरिया की किल्लत के चलते किसान परेशान हैं। जगह-जगह लाइनें लगी हैं और लेकिन अधिकतर सहकारी समितियों पर यूरिया समाप्त हो चुकी है।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) August 19, 2020
किसान कालाबाजारी से परेशान है।
यूपी सरकार को तुरंत हस्तक्षेप कर यूरिया की किल्लत की समस्या का समाधान करना चाहिए। pic.twitter.com/1VdxCWiSF6
Urea is the most important nitrogenous fertilizer in the market, with the highest Nitrogen content (about 46 percent). It is a white crystalline organic chemical compound. Urea is neutral in pH and can adapt to almost all kinds of soils. It is a waste product formed naturally by metabolizing protein in humans as well as other mammals, amphibians and some fish. Urea is widely used in the agricultural sector both as a fertilizer and animal feed additive.
An year back in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress-led state government blamed the central government, alleging that the annual state quota of fertilizers was reduced by over 2.5 lakh metric tonnes as the farmers at several places in Madhya Pradesh started protesting over acute shortage of urea during peak Rabi season around December.
