Member alleges misuse of funds in Coffee Board

Addressing a press conference here on Saturday, vijay said that the government should order CBI probe into the irregularities taken place in the Coffee Board. “A protest will be organised in front of the Coffee Board Office, if an inquiry was not conducted within a month,” he warned.

“The Coffee Board, which is controlled by powerful lobby, does not listen to members’ suggestions. Board meetings were organised only twice in six months. Growers are not being benefitted as the Board always furnishes erroneous facts and figures to the central government,” he alleged. Similarly, the President of the Coffee Board do not send reports to the Central government in time. Moreover, efforts are on to divide growers’ union memers, he added. As the President and officials are in foreign tour, neither members nor growers have any information regarding the situation.

He said that due to the erroneous reports of the Board, the Coffee Package of the central government is being delayed.
