If bananas get a big market, the farmers’ situation will improve
Padrauna (Kushinagar). Banana, which, like sugar cane, is gradually becoming a crop, is of less benefit to farmers due to the lack of a suitable market. Traders coming from outside buy bananas at their own expense. Faced with this problem facing farmers, the Khadda MLA has sent a letter to several departments, including the Union Railway Ministry and the Ministry of Food Processing, asking them to designate special railway bogies for the direct delivery of bananas to large cities out of the county. In response to the letter from the MLA, the Ministry of Food Processing has also sent a letter to the Ministry of Railways.
The situation of the sugar cane farmers in the district is bad. To overcome this, farmers have now started growing bananas. Bananas are currently being grown in the district on an area of ​​around nine thousand hectares. Banana grower Jaiprakash says the biggest problem for bananas is the lack of a local market. Because of this, traders come from many large cities such as Kanpur, Ghaziabad, Meerut, so they have to roam the field and buy bananas. Ram Pravesh explains that the price gets very low when traders come into the field. The banana, which is sold in the market for 40 rupees per kg, is picked up by the same trader for less than 20 rupees. But Khadda MLA Jatashankar Tripathi has taken the first step towards a solution to this problem facing farmers. The MLA has written a letter to the Union Finance Minister, the Minister of Food Processing and the Minister of Railways providing information on banana production in his region, requesting that an AC bogie freight train be operated on the Gorakhpur-Narkatiyaganj railway line.
The MLA has requested that an eight-car train be sent from Paniyahwa station via Lucknow-Kanpur to Delhi on this route, so that the bananas produced here can be transported directly to Mandi in Kanpur and Ghaziabad. This gives the farmers a fair price for the harvest and others also get fresh bananas to eat.
Bananas are sown more in the Khadda area
The people of Khadda and Nebua Naurangia blocks have reduced sugarcane sowing since the government sector’s Chhitauni sugar factory closed. Instead, in addition to rice-wheat, the cultivation of bananas is also promoted. Vendors also grab it to buy bananas in the field. Apart from that, banana cultivation is also abundant in the Vishunpura, Dudahi and Severhi areas.
Employment will increase from the traffic center
When a special train runs on the Gorakhpur-Narkatiyaganj railway line for the transport of bananas, its center will be the Khadda and Paniyawa station. Farmers have to travel a short distance to get their produce to Paniyahwa or Khadda station. This also increases the need for people to load and unload goods at these two train stations, so that more and more people are finding employment.
This success can soon be achieved
Khadda MLA Jatashankar Tripathi says that under the Kisan Rail Network Scheme we wrote a letter to the Prime Minister, Agriculture Minister, Minister of Food Processing and many officials. It is expected that the Khadda area will receive a special achievement very soon.
