Guwahati/ 26th December’2017 (Prag News Desk): On Monday, the Congress protested against the Gujarat government for discontinuing the Narmada water to the cumin producing belt of Patan, Surendranagar and Banaskantha.
As Gujarat is the largest producer of cumin seeds, accounting for over 85 percent of the total cumin produced in the country.
State Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi said that the prices of piped natural gas (PNG) had been raised by Rs 2.50 per standard cubic meter (SCM) for industrial units in Morbi. While, earlier the prices were Rs 24.87 SCM, now they had been raised to Rs 27.37 SCM. He also added that the price hike would hit ceramic units the most as they are already facing a competition from China.
