Chief Minister of Goa Pramod Sawant said the Goa government may soon stop procurement of vegetables from Belagavi.
Swant who was speaking at a function on natural farming underlined the need for the state to be self-sufficient in vegetable production.
The CM added further, that each state has to be self-sufficient in all the ways possible be it vegetables, fruits, milk etc.
A major supply of vegetables to Goa invariably comes from Belagavi; in fact, Goa is entirely dependent on Belagavi for the procurement of their daily need of vegetables of 300-400 MT per day.
Sawant added further that the corporation is likely to stop purchasing vegetables from Belagavi to boost local production of vegetables in the coming days.
