Though tomato is sold in cities in Rs 30-40 a kg the middlemen are buying it here in Rs 7. He speaks to a farmer Rajkumar Baitha who says he took Rs 50,000 as loan and he will not be able to raise his cost this year. He requests to set up a Tomato sauce factory in area where they can sell the tomato direct. For more Ugan Ji can be reached at 07250323650
