Congress blamed for farmers' woes in the state

Udupi-Chikmagalur MP Shobha Karandlaje said farmers in State are under constant fear against their livelihood surety owing to irresponsible and non-compassionate Congress-led State government.

Briefing repoters, she demanded that government should pay pending amount to  farmers from sugar factories before the session begins in Belagavi on June 29. She ridiculed that the State government is adamant even after recent deaths of two sugarcane farmers. She said the government has failed to pay the support price to sugarcane growers. She defied the government saying that the government should sell the sugar and pay the pending the amount to the farmers.

She said BJP is into protest and Padyatra to make the State government realise the pathetic conditions of sugarcane growers. She said if the government is unable to wipe the tears of sugarcane growers, it should step down paving way for others to take over power.

She said it is scary that whoever questions the Congress ministers, they would be murdered. For instance, murder incident of Yellalinga in Koppal. She demanded action against  Minister Shivraj Tangadagi. BJP is organising protest at Koppal on June 27. She said former CM Kumaraswamy and Yeddyurappa have met to plan the future course of action, she said.

Stating the security in rural areas in Byndoor ensuring safety to the girls and students who travel long distance to schools and colleges should be introduced, she added that the govt should arrange for  transport facilities for the students. She has raised the issue with the SP for taking stringent action against youth who are found committing illegal activities. Girls should go to schools and colleges in groups.

Police dept should also look into drug trafficking activities and other crime taking place in the region, she added. She demanded that investigation be done into the suspicious death of Ratna Kotari that took place last year.
