    Traders and farmers from Andhra Pradesh are facing a dilemma as their lorries carrying thin grain yield are being blocked by officials in the Nalgonda district. These lorries are headed to rice millers in Miryalaguda, but the authorities have stopped over 150 grain lorries since Saturday night. This has caused tension between the lorry crews, officials, grain traders, and farmers. The lorry crews have demanded that they be allowed to unload their lorries, citing that it is unfair to stop them without prior information.

    The farmers of Miryalaguda division have expressed concern over decreasing prices for their thin paddy produce due to the arrival of grain from the neighboring state. Meanwhile, traders and farmers from Andhra Pradesh are demanding that their lorries be allowed to sell their grain as they are at risk of serious loss. The government has fixed the support price for A and B grade grain, but Miryalaguda millers are buying above the fixed support price due to the demand for fine rice.

    Traders from the border districts of Andhra Pradesh are buying grain from local farmers at a low price and bringing it to Miryalaguda millers to sell at a higher price. This has caused concern among the farmers of Miryalaguda area as the millers are paying only up to 2100 per quintal for the grain grown by the farmers. In response to this, the authorities have set up check posts to prevent grain lorries from entering the Nalgonda district of the neighboring state.

    The lorry crews have argued that their grain would change color if it is left in the lorries, and they have requested the police to allow them to unload. The government has fixed Rs 2060 per quintal for A grade grain and Rs 2040 per quintal for B grade grain. However, Miryalaguda millers are buying up to 2300 per quintal above the fixed support price due to the demand for fine rice.

While the traders are trying to make a profit by buying low and selling high, the farmers are worried about losing money due to the influx of grain from Andhra Pradesh. The authorities have set up check posts to prevent further conflict, but it remains to be seen how this situation will be resolved.
