Dairy farmers protest throwing milk on the street

Dozens of dairy farmers on Saturday threw litres of milk on a road protesting its falling prices amid corona lockdowns.   

About 50 dairy farmers staged the protest near Bahadurpur Bazar in Singra Upazila.

They complained that the price of milk has been falling in the village markets due to the continuous lockdowns.

They said they don’t even sell the milk Tk. 20 per kg.

The farmers demanded that Milkvita buys milk from them under government management so they get fair price.

Singra Upazila Animal Resources Officer Dr Khurshid Alam said that the price of milk usually drops much on weekend holidays -Friday and Saturday.
