He further added that FCI and NAFED are working with states on procurement.
On agriculture sector relief package
Tomar told CNBC-TV18 that it would be premature to talk about a second relief package. He said that the focus is on boosting the rural economy and hence industries in rural areas have also been allowed to function.
Tomar added that the wage revision is under consideration. He also said that all pending dues under MGNREGA from central government to states have been cleared.
