NEPALGUNJ: Farmers at the remote Baghauda region of Banke district across the Rapti River have been compelled to export milk to the Indian market.
The milk produced in some of the VDCs of the region has been exported to Indian market under compulsion.
It's due to lack of smooth transport facility to Nepalgunj market, groaned local farmers.
Farmers of Baijapur, Kalaphanta, Gangapur, Binauna, Matahaiya, Katkuinya, Narainapur, have been exporting around 1,000 litres of milk to Indian market everyday.
'Farmers here are selling milk in Indian market owing to lack of access to transport facility', said Abadharam Yadav, a farmer.
Of the total need of 20,000 litres of milk in Nepalgunj every day, currently only 15,000 litres is made available, according to District Livestock Service Office.
