Govt. weaklings battle with powerful mills! Featured

Despite the government saying that the Paddy Marketing Board will pay a higher price for the paddy harvest in the Maha season to compete with the private sector, it is reported that the only lorry owned by the board is also on logs and unable to run.

This lorry is about 30 years old and not in running condition, it is reported.

According to the 'Aruna' newspaper, a senior official of the Paddy Marketing Board said that only two vehicles are in operation.

Of the two vehicles, the cab is used by the board chairman and the other is said to be in a dilapidated condition.

Another vehicle is reportedly on logs.

It is also reported that the vehicle crisis has caused problems for the entire management system of the board in carrying out its duties.

In addition, it is revealed that the Paddy Marketing Board has 225 warehouses across the country but the board itself has only 200 employees.
