BHOPAL – The Madhya Pradesh government is mulling to improve the infrastructure at mandis within the state by opening stores for subsidized agricultural merchandise and department shops similar to Army canteens inside their premises, state Agriculture Minister Kamal Patel said on Saturday. According to the proposal, at least 25 petrol pumps can be opened on a pilot foundation within the premises of mandis. The announcement was made after holding a meeting with Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. The decision comes as farmers across states have been protesting the three contentious farm laws and have demanded for a separate regulation to verify the functioning of mandis.
