Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi
today assured the assembly that farmers would be paid for
their paddy within 24 hours of receiving the list of those who
were yet to receive it after opposition RJD MLA Dinesh Kumar
Singh created ruckus over the issue.
Singh vociferously protested against alleged non-payment
to farmers three months after primary agriculture
co-operative society (PACs) procured paddy from them.
He raised the issue during zero hour and entered the
well of the house shouting anti-government slogans.
Modi, who was present in the house asked the agitated
member to provide a list of farmers who had not yet received
the payment and made the assurance.
