Kathmandu. Nepal Krantikari Kisan Sangh, a grassroots organization of the Nepal Labor Farmers Party, has protested demanding that farmers be given chemical fertilizers on time.
On Friday, the organization staged a protest at Ratnapark in Kathmandu demanding timely delivery of chemical fertilizers to the farmers.
They protested that the government led by Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal has reduced the amount of government subsidy available to farmers from Rs 80 to Rs 64 per kg for urea fertilizer, Rs 59 per kg for DAP fertilizer to Rs 52 per kg, and Rs 58 to Rs 46 per kg for potash.
After the struggle of farmers across the country against the increase in the price of chemical fertilizers and the reduction of subsidies, the current government is forced to keep the status quo.
They have protested by demanding nationalization of private banks and undisclosed assets, strict action against all those involved in the case of fake Bhutanese refugees.
Nemkipa had set up a chemical fertilizer factory in Nepal, canceled the three percent vote limit, American imperialism was dead, and the anti-national citizenship bill had been protested against by placard holders.
