MSP Issue Likely To Rock Odisha Assembly Session

The demand for raising Minimum Support Price (MSP) of paddy is likely to rock the Odisha Assembly again. As the issue is still to be discussed in the House, the Opposition may demand a discussion on it today.

According to sources, Business Advisory Committee of the House is to finalize a date for discussion on the issue in today’s session. Respective notices in this regard had been given by the Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra and Agriculture Minister Pradip Maharathy earlier.

While Mishra had given the proposal of raising the MSP of paddy to Rs 2800 per quintal, Maharathy had proposed raising it to Rs 2500 per quintal.
