Delhi: Farmers' protest hampers green supply in mandis

Due to ongoing protests by farmers borders have been sealed and mandis in Delhi facing a shortage in supply of fruits and vegetables. There is no shortage of fruits and vegetables yet, but prices are likely to increase if the situation does not change. Azadpur Mandi, Delhi’s largest wholesale fruit and vegetable market, where goods reach every day not only from the states but also abroad, has seen a dip in arrivals since Friday. The volume of daily arrivals is now just around 2,800 tonnes of the normal 5,500 tonnes of fruits and 5,600 tonnes of the regular supply of 6,500 tonnes of vegetables. Adil Ahmad Khan, chairman, Azadpur Agricultural Produce Market Committee, said the sealing of the borders had affected the supply of fruits and vegetables.
