Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi on Monday assured the assembly that farmers would be paid for their paddy within 24 hours of reciving the list of those who were yet to receive it after opposition RJD MLA Dinesh Kumar Singh created ruckus over the issue.
Singh vociferously protested against alleged non-payment to farmers three months after primary agriculture co-operative society (PACs) procured paddy from them.
He raised the issue during zero hour and entered the well of the house shouting anti-government slogans. Modi, who was present in the house asked the agitated member to provide a list of farmers who had not yet received the payment and made the assurance.
