CHANDIGARH JUNE 29:-       As the Government of India (GoI) is likely to get the permission to export four million tones of wheat from India, Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal demanded from the Central Government that the wheat should be exported from the states on the proportion on which wheat stock was lying with the respective states.
Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of Chief Minister’s office said that Mr. Badal had demanded that larger export share must be allotted to those states where the stored quantity of wheat was more.
        Expressing his apprehension, Mr. Badal categorically said that it would be unjust if wheat from the states with low holding be lifted first for export. In the larger interest of the beleaguered farming community in the state, priority must be given to Punjab with had large stock of surplus wheat, added Mr. Badal.  The Chief Minister also reminded the centre that the state had not only exhausted its natural resources like ground water and soil but also beared the expanse of costly diesel, fertilizers and other agro inputs to produce record crops for the nation. Mr. Badal asked the centre to consider all these facts before deciding to allot export share of wheat to the states.
