Farmers' plea on Kappatagudda

An association of farmers on Thursday urged Chief Minister Siddaramaiah not to restore conservation reserve tag of Kappatagudda region in Gadag district.

In a memorandum submitted to Siddaramaiah, Kappatagudda Farmers’ and Workers’ Protection Forum president Venkatesh Dasara stated that as many as 639 farmer families were cultivating in the region. Besides, around 90,000 animals were dependent on the region for grazing.

The memorandum urges the government not to be carried away by the protests especially by seers of various maths to restore the conservation tag. Most of the farmers, who were dependent on the region, were either Dalits or OBCs.
