Fruits and vegetables' wholesalers go on strike
Wholesalers of fruits and vegetables began an indefinite strike here Monday to protest against the government decision to withdraw their six percent commissions from the farmers.
"Earlier we used to procure six percent commission from the growers. But now the Delhi government has stopped this and wants us to take the commission from the buyers," Meetha Ram, president of Chamber of Azadpur Fruit and Vegetable Sellers told IANS.
According to the wholesalers, charging the commission from the buyers means adding extra burden to the buyers.
"Moreover there is no clarity on the policies of the government," added Meetha Ram.
Azadpur is arguably Asia's largest wholesale fruits and vegetables market.
