Mohammad Alamgir, a six-acre potato grower from Khandauli close to Agra, is offended with Asaduddin Owaisi. Not as a result of his celebration — the Hyderabad-based All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen — is preventing the approaching Uttar Pradesh Meeting elections. It has, as a substitute, to do with the celebration lending assist to the ruling dispensation in Telangana, which has “banned” import of potatoes from UP.

“How can he (Owaisi) marketing campaign right here, whereas backing a authorities (of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi) that has blocked entry of our potatoes there (in Telangana)?” asks Alamgir, who can also be normal secretary of the Aloo Utpadak Kisan Samiti in Agra.

Alamgir estimates that about 100 vans, every loaded with some 500 50-kg luggage of potatoes, go from UP to Telangana day by day. Out of that, 50-60 vans are from Agra alone. Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu collectively account for roughly three-fourths of the 700-800 vans going every day from UP to varied states.
