Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath is expected to minister of state (MoS) of chemicals and fertilisers Rao Inderjit Singh to discuss the shortage of urea in the state.

Farmers in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are complaining of urea shortage.

However, union fertiliser minister Sadananda Gowda on Friday said urea supply in the country is comfortable and states, including the Congress-ruled Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, have been provided with more fertiliser than their demand.

Urea's maximum retail price is fixed at Rs 5,360 per tonne. It is the most commonly used fertiliser because it is highly subsidised.
