Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya Schools Akhilesh Yadav On Urea Price Hike Claim | Economy News


New Delhi: A war of words broke out between Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Manuskh Mandaviya regarding the former’s claim of urea price hike.

In a tweet, Akhilesh Yadav blamed the BJP government for exploiting the farmers over the increase in urea price. 

“The BJP government has become synonymous with exploitation of farmers. The bag of urea has now reduced in weight to 40 kg. The farmer understands this simple mathematics very well that earlier the price of 45 kg urea for ₹ 266.50 i.e. one kg urea was approximately ₹ 5.92 but now 40 kg will cost ₹ 266.50 i.e. approximately 6.66 kg per kg, which means in one stroke the price of urea is more than 12%. It has become expensive,” Akhilesh Yadav wrote.

However, Minister Mansukh Mandaviya schooled Yadav on his wrong calculations and advised him to stay away from misguiding the farmers.

Coming strongly on Yadav’s claims, Mandaviya wrote that the former has mistaken the price of neem coated urea with that of Sulphur Coated Urea (Urea Gold).

“Dear Akhilesh ji, First of all, I want to make it clear to you that Neem coated urea was available at ₹ 266.5 per bag of 45 kg, is available now, and will continue to be available. But PM @NarendraModi. With the slogan of Ji K Jai Anusandhan, we have created a new sulfur coated ‘Gold Urea’ in the interest of farmers,” Mandaviya tweeted.

He also reminded Yadav for raising questions on the vaccine made in the country during Covid and making fun of the same scientists.

“…Even during the time of Covid, you had raised questions on the vaccine made in the country, which the country and our scientists have not been able to forget. Today again you have made fun of the same scientists. I hope that you will not mislead the farmers and will work together in the interest of the farmers,” Mandaviya wrote.

Union Government has taken a step in the form of PM PRANAM scheme. The efforts also include introduction of slow-release Sulphur Coated Urea (Urea Gold), nano urea, nano DAP etc. to promote use of alternate fertilizers to save the mother earth.
