Govt paying no attention to problems of Betel leaf growers, alleges farmer

Motilal Chourasia is calling from Masah in Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh where many farmers grow betel leaf. He says growing betel leaf is a way of life here and the betel leaf grown in this area is very popular and goes all over the country but the govt is not giving any attention to the problems of betel leaf farmers and there is fear that entire betel leaf production will stop here.
