'State, Union governments insensitive to price hike'

The members stated that the prices of day-to-day commodities was increasing day-by-day. The prices of pulses and cereals were sky-rocketing. These commodities had become a luxury to the poor and middle class families. Instead of regularising the prices, the Government was involved in cheap politics, they added.

All those political parties, who claim that they are pro-farmers, are busy safeguarding their own interests and welfare, the protesters alleged.

Both the Central and the State governments were not interested in responding to the problems of the farmers. And even in case if they are serious, they would have taken the initiative to implement the permanent irrigation project in this region, they said.
Even now, if the government was serious in solving the problems of the farmers, then it should take measures to ensure that the prices of the commodities and food items are regularised.

It should also ensure that the foodgrains should be easily available to the poor beneficiaries. By implementing the report of Dr Paramashivaiah, the Government should take steps to see that the agricultural lands in this region were irrigated properly, informed President of the district unit of the DYFI M P Munivenkatappa.
B N Munikrishnappa of Karnataka Prantha Raitha Sangha, Kumar of Janavadi Mahila Sanghatane, Madhulata, Y Narayan of SFI and several others took part in the protest.
