Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday patted himself, claiming that farmers in the state did not resort to violent protests as his government had initiated several measures for their welfare. Unlike Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, where the farmers staged violent protests, farmers in Karnataka did not agitate. This shows that the government is pro-farmer and that programmes being implemented by it have helped them, he said, replying to a debate on demand for grants in the Assembly. Leader of the Opposition Jagadish Shettar said Karnataka stands second in the country in the number of farmers' suicides. "Why are farmer ending their lives in large numbers?

"Farmers were killed in Haveri soon after B S Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister in 2008. You (BJP ...

Why, despite bountiful harvest, farmers are in despair 8.6.2017 All News-IANS Stories
Amravati/Mumbai: A plentiful harvest in 2016 but imports drive some prices down 63 per cent. A shortage of cash because of demonetisation. Despite Rs 3.5 lakh crore -- enough to build 545 Tehri-sized dams -- invested on irrigation over six decades to 2011, more than half of all farms depend on rains. These are the three factors agitating Indians who depend on farming -- 90 million families, or 54.6 per cent of countrys 1.2 billion people.

CM accuses BSY of double standards 21.5.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday accused BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa of double standards on the issue of farm loan waiver in the state. "He (Yeddyurappa) had openly stated that he cannot waive of farm loan when he was the chief minister. But now he is insisting that the government do it. Is it not double standards?" he asked while reacting to the BJP's demand for farm loan waiver. He was speaking after offering tribute to the late Rajiv Gandhi on his 26th death anniversary at the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) office here. He also accused the BJP leaders of indulging in politics in the name of farmers. Yeddyurappa is trying to mislead people of the state on the issue of loan waiver. "I never ridiculed the BJP leaders for taking up drought study tour. I only suggested that they should instead go to Delhi and urge the Prime Minister to waive farm loan," he added. KPCC president Parameshwara said the BJP leaders should be ashamed of themselves for reportedly eating idlis and vadas brought ...
