Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh BJP chief Prabhat Jha on Wednesday said purchase centres and mandis in the state would not come under the purview of `Bharat Bandh` called tomorrow.
The decision to exempt the purchase centres and mandis from the bandh has been taken to ensure that farmers do not suffer any inconvenience, Jha said in a release issued here.
It was the responsibility of every BJP worker to make sure that wheat produced by farmers reaches mandis and they get the support price for it.
