NCP chief Sharad Pawar met Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday and discussed issues related to the sugar industry. He was accompanied by Jaiprakash Dandegaonkar, President of NFCSF (National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories Ltd) and Prakash Naiknavre.

Pawar shared details about his meeting with Home Minister on Twitter. He tweeted, “Had a brief meeting with Union Co-operation Minister Shri Amit Shah in New Delhi today along with Shri Jaiprakash Dandegaonkar, President of NFCSF (National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories Ltd) & Prakash Naiknavre to discuss issues faced by the sugar co-operative sector.”

He also congratulated Amit Shah on being appointed as the first Co-operation Minister of India.

In an another tweet, Pawar said, “We brought to his notice the two most emergent & severe issues like MSP & permissions to set up Ethanol manufacturing units within the premises of sugar mills. We hope that these issues would be favourably considered & resolved at the earliest by Hon’ble Co-operation Minister.”

Sugar millers in the country have been asking for a hike in sugar MSP as they claim that it is lower than the cost of production.
