Sugarcane farmers hopeful of reopening of Budhwal sugar mill

Ramnagar (Barabanki): After being closed for nearly 16 years, the Budhwal sugar mill in Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh, is expected to reopen soon, reported Amar Ujala.

The mill was shut down in 2007 due to financial losses, but there is plan to reopen it under a public-private partnership (PPP) model.

In preparation for the reopening, the district administration has removed illegal encroachments from the mill’s land and installed barbed wire fencing.

The mill’s reopening is a major victory for the sugarcane farmers of the area, who have been demanding its reopening for years. The mill is expected to provide employment to thousands of people and boost the local economy.

The issue of the long-closed Budhwal sugar mill, which had been shut for nearly 16 years, came into focus during a public rally in the Ramanagar region as local farmers raised their concerns in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. In response, the Secretary of the Sugar Industry assured opening of the mill through a PPP model, which is expected to bring significant benefits to the farmers.

There are currently 7,800 registered farmers in the Budhwal Sugarcane Committee. Approximately 4,500 hectares of land in the Ramanagar region were used for sugarcane cultivation. Residents of the area believe that if this dream becomes a reality, it will also provide employment opportunities for the people. Those living in the Tarai region of Ghaghara won’t have to go outside for employment.
