Govt. to release crop loss arrears

Source: The Hindu :-  

The State government will release crop loss relief arrears to Bidar farmers. Chief Minister Siddharamaiah has assured a delegation, led by district in-charge Minister Umashree, of carrying out a fresh survey of crop loss, if necessary.

Farmers had also staged a dharna seeking the release of Rs. 18 crore crop loss relief arrears from the State government that was pending for over a year.

They withdrew the protest after N. Dharam Singh, former MP, assured them of taking up the matter with the Chief Minister.

Ms. Umashree led a delegation of six MLAs and MP Bhagwant Khuba in Bengaluru on Sunday.

Eshwar Khandre, MLA, said that the Chief Minister had agreed to most of the demands of the farmers, including release of complete crop loss arrears.
