Farmers dump 40 containers of milk after COVID-19 lockdown restricts sales

Dairy farmers dumped a huge quantity of milk after failing to sell their produce due to the lockdown triggered by coronavirus.

Milk producers in Palambaavi village in Raibagh taluk in southern India took 40 large containers of milk and emptied them into an irrigation canal on Monday (March 30).

They alleged that the police had banned movement of trucks and seized a vehicle forcing them to dump their entire produce of the day.

As India observes a 21-day lockdown many farmers are opting to destroy their produce unable to move them to markets. Many fear that the lockdown, which has disrupted supply chains and shut down businesses, may create severe economic distress.
