Maharashtra: Farmer gets Rs 1,064 for 750 kg of onion; sends earning to PM Narendra Modi in protest

An onion-grower from Maharashtra who had to sell his produce for little over Rs 1 per kg has sent his earnings to the Prime Minister to mark his protest. Sanjay Sathe, resident of Niphad tehsil in Nashik district, was among the handful of `progressive farmers' selected by the Union agriculture ministry for an interaction with then US president Barack Obama when he visited India in 2010.
