Farmers of Panchkhal have requested the administration of Kavrepalanchok to supply fertilizers easily due to the lack of chemical fertilizers during the planting of vegetable crops including potatoes. They have formed a struggle committee for fertilizer supply and have also submitted a letter of attention to the Panchkhal Municipality Office and the District Administration Office.

Hundreds of farmers present to Chief District Officer Humkala Pandey and City Deputy Chief Suryamaya Danuwar have given notice to them since they have been suffering from a lack of chemical fertilizers for a year and have warned that they will go on strike if there is no easy supply of fertilizers even during the planting of vegetable crops such as potatoes.

On Thursday, they organized a rally demanding fertilizer at the Panchkhal market and headquarters in Dhulikhel and handed over a notice. Prajia Pandey said that he is very serious about the problem of the farmers and will facilitate the central agency to solve the problem.

Gyan Bahadur Thapa, the coordinator of the Chemical Fertilizer Supply Sanghsarsh Committee, demanded that chemical fertilizers be readily available before Tihar.
