As soon as the report is complete the matter will be taken up with Anurag Thakur, MP who happens to the President of the B.C.C.I. Dr.Gagan Bhagat also told the C.M that the farmer community is facing very hardships who are dealing with Basmati , as R.S Pura is known for Basmati Rice all over the world it is very unfortunate that now the farmer is hesitating from cultivating Basmati , which is not good for the R.S Pura, on this the C.M assured that she will soon take up the issue with the Agriculture department and will direct the officials to promote the Basmati cultivation ,harvesting and its sale to benefit the farmers, Dr.Gagan also appealed to shift the existing Fruit and Vegetable Mandi from main bazaar to some place outside the bazaar , so that the problem of traffic jam could be tackled and more and more farmers from surrounding Bishnah, Arnia, Treva ,Suchetgarh come to the R.S Pura Mandi, which will happen only when it is shifted outside main bazaar. Lastly Dr.Gagan Bhagat also appealed the C.M to give R.S Pura priority in the developmental works, and in the Police recruitment rallies which should be held at R.S Pura , he further added that his constituency was ignored for consecutively Eighteen straight years in the previous Coalition regime in which NC & Congress had played a vital anti-R.S Pura role, and due to that the people especially youths have to suffer a lot.
