Jaipur, Nov 16 (IANS) Amid the ongoing urea crisis in Rajasthan, farmers can breathe easy as eight rakes of urea are likely come to the state every day with the efforts of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
Birla held a meeting with the officials of the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilisers in Delhi on Tuesday regarding the urea crisis in Rajasthan.
