24/01/2016 …. Pwd minister sudhan dhavlikar has said that the state government would have to re think on the upcoming sumul dairy if there were a loss to the dairy farmers of the state as well as goan workers working in goa dairy
It may be noted that Goa Dairy workers have been in panic mode in the past few days after the state government granted permission to Gujarat-based Surat District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Limited to implement its schemes and establish large scale dairy farms in Goa fearing that SUMUL’s entry would directly affect their jobs, and hence, they were under tremendous pressure.
While certain dairy farmers from that state on thursday had said that SUMUL’s introduction will bring in healthy and fair competition.
Speaking to goanreporter.com pwd minister sudhin dhavlikar said that it there was a loss to our goan farmers then the government needs to act on the issue
Meanwhile commenting over the issue chief minister laxmikant parsekar said that if sumul was being allowed to enter in the state there could be a healthy competition among goa dairy and sumul which could in turn help state dairy farmers to get their required rates for their supply of milk along with other facilities
Mr parsekar said that the decision was only for the benefit of the farmers and the media was just trying to create another coconut issue out of the concerned issue unit
