Mangaluru: Milk price likely to go up by Rs two a litre, KMF waiting govt's decision


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Oct 23: Shortly, Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) is expected to increase the price of milk by two rupees a litre. KMF has already approached the government with a proposal for price hike, duly pointing out that milk prices have remained stagnant for the last two years.

KMF says that if the price is not hiked now, district milk unions will face problems. These unions are grappling with an increase in staff salary, fuel price hike, payment of higher price to dairy farmers, concession extended on cattle feed during pandemic etc. It has said that unless the price is upwardly revised, it will be impossible to meet the mounting expenses. All the 14 milk unions and KMF have pitched for increasing the prices of milk.

KMF gets about 90 lac litres of milk from dairy farmers and sells 51 lac litres every day. The remaining milk is used to manufacture other products. KMF is now waiting for the decision of the government.

    Here also blame on PM. Therefore, let me point out again that 50 year old Balaak, while deriding the achievements of the Gujarat Govt some years back, said that,Women are responsible for milk sufficiency in Gujarat. " Agar Gujarat Ko kissi ne Doodh deeya hai, tho in mahilaaon ne diya hai " among one his top sentences. This Balaak has too much knowledge, from milk production to what BHEL produces. If he becomes PM, he may look at alternative sources of milk also. Always brimming with ideas like potato churning etc. Willing to take a risk for a 2 rs hike per litre of milk?? Think ok. I just wrote what Baalak said.

    Another price hike. Another surgical strike on common man's dwindling income. This government will not stop till it has made beggars out of common people. Let's forget the andhbhakt community. Nothing good can come out of them or their new Cooperative Minister in Delhi.

    If cows drink petrol, we have to drink petrol tea/petrol coffee/petrol curd/petrol butter milk/ and eat petrol peda/petrol sweets/petrol butter/petrol cheese.....Then you have to pay more money to import milk products from Switzerland/Australia/denmark....that time can spend more money ? Now cant pay 2 rupaiyya etc ? Hmm

    Government not concerned about the people. Government will surely increase the price of milk since there is no election coming up except the by polls which does not concern them much since they are good at horse trading. Is this called acche din?
