Lucknow: Alleging that the state government was promoting hoarding of fertilisers, BJP today claimed that contrary to the government claims, there was an acute shortage of fertilisers in the state.

"The state government has turned a blind eye towards the hoarders and promoting them due to which there was acute shortage of fertiliser in the state," state BJP vice president Hriday Narain Dixit told reporters here.

He said that while farmers were protesting against the shortage of fertiliser, state government was not paying any heed to them by ignoring their interests.

"While government officers were conducting raids at village level shops, they were patronising big fertiliser dealers. BSP government is anti-farmer," Dixit alleged.

He said that in Basti district, farmers, who were demanding adequate supply of fertilisers, were cane charged by police.
