Slow in­ter­net ham­pers on­line paddy sell­ing in Bard­haman

The DQWeek (Kolkata) - - REGIONAL NEWS - ANUSHRUTI SINGH Bard­haman

Kisaan’s are rest­less in Bard­haman. They are wait­ing for WiFi ser­vices to be re­vamped, not for their en­ter­tain­ment but for their busi­ness.

Actually, the govern­ment has set up a camp in Kisan Mandi in Aus­gram of Deb­shala to buy rice di­rectly from farm­ers. Farm­ers were sup­posed to be en­rolled on­line to get good price for sell­ing rice. But afraid, there is no ac­tive in­ter­net con­nec­tion which in turn is slow­ing the process from past 20 days. Due to this tech­ni­cal is­sue the whole process is go­ing back­wards. “Deb­shala is far away from our vil­lage. Rice is vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to sell here. How­ever, BDO says he is try­ing to re­solve the prob­lem as soon as pos­si­ble.” One an­gry farmer spoke.

The is­sue is tak­ing too long to re­solve as a re­sult, farm­ers are com­ing back ev­ery day. While po­lit­i­cal par­ties have also started to make this as a pub­lic is­sue.
