Borders blocked, Delhi may see shortage of fruits, veggies

Nov 30, 2020 08:58 IST

Barricades, and farmers blocking Delhi’s borders with Haryana has hit supplies of fruits and vegetable to the Capital. Traders say that there is no shortage yet but the ripples of the protest are likely to show in the coming days, the Hindustan Times has reported. It is mostly the wholesale supply that has taken a hit with hundreds of trucks not being able to enter the city. According to the Azadpur Agriculture Produce Market Committee, supply in the market dropped by 50-60% in the last two days with trucks from Punjab and Haryana unable to reach the market, the report added. Delhi gets most of its milk and vegetable supplies from Haryana and the situation is likely to get worse in the coming days if the farmers’ agitation continues.
