Wakro receives fruits, local vegetables

WAKRO, Apr 22: Following reports of shortage in vegetables here, the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) of Lohit district, in collaboration with the district administration and Wakro EAC, made locally grown summer vegetables, including potatoes and fruits, available for sale here on Wednesday.
Sufficient quantity of vegetables and fruits were sent from the Tezu headquarters for government employees and public of the area at reasonable prices to meet with their requirements during the ongoing lockdown period as flow of vegetables to Wakro circle from the markets in Assam has been completely suspended.
Besides this arrangement, the sale of locally grown vegetables and fruits by agriculturists and self help groups in and around Tezu Township is continuing through the APMC market complex.
The sales of fish are also underway at periodical intervals under the district unit of the fishery department through fish farmers of Fishery FPO. (DIPRO)
