Raitha sangha meet

Ammathinadu Raitha Sangha has organised a convention to urge the government to solve the problems faced by farmers, at Ammathi Kodava Samaja on May 29.

Addressing a press meet at Madikeri recently, sangha president K U Ganapathy said the farmers should be able to fix price for the produce grown by them. The Central government should reduce the price of fertilisers. The middlemen are engaged in cheating the farmers in the name of supplying labourers, he alleged.
