Mangaluru: The curfew which was imposed after the protest against Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) went awry, affected the Dakshina Kannada Milk Producers Union Ltd (DKMPUL) in a bad way as around 1.5 lakh litres milk and 25,000 litres of curd remained unsold.

Speaking about the issue, DKMPUL president Raviraj Hegde, on Monday, December 23, said that during the two-day curfew, police prevented the movement of milk tankers which disrupted the supply of milk and curd to the distant places. “In the past, there was a relaxation for milk tankers during the curfew. However, this time, the milk tankers were not allowed to leave for other destinations, which affected the supply,” he said.

Hegde informed that the unsold milk would be used to produce milk powder. “The DKMPUL incurred a loss of around Rs 10 per litre of milk. Despite this, the unsold milk will be used to make milk powder,” he said and added that the curfew had no effect upon the collection of milk from dairy farmers.
