The traders at the MVP Rythu Bazaar and the say that they have been doing a good business for the past few months.
“Even the high prices are no deterrent even to the average middle class customer. We have been buying jonnalu and ragulu grown through natural farming practices for the past few years. Since the past few months, we have started purchasing ‘chiru dhanyalu’ too as they have high nutritive value. Protein deficiency is growing among vegetarians. I have been watching several programmes on Youtube and learnt about the benefits of millets,” says K.V.P.S. Achari, a resident of Sector-III, MVP Colony.
