Agriculture department cheating farmers with extra cost

Dhananjay Tikadar from Malkangiri in Odisha says his is the most backward district in the state. All the people are dependent on farming. They depend on Govt subsidy shops for seed, fertilizer and pesticide. From last few years government officials are cheating farmers by charging Rs 30 to 50 extra in each bag by giving excuses. This way the officials have earned lakhs from these poorest of poor farmers. He requests us to intervene and help. For more Dhananjay ji can be reached at 08658626352
