BJP youth wing stages stir for better price

Special Correspondent

SHIMOGA: Members of the BJP District Rural Yuva Morcha staged a dharna on the premises of the Deputy Commissioner’s office here on Monday demanding remunerative price to the sugarcane and the arecanut and suitable compensation for the loss suffered by them in the district.

The memorandum submitted by them to the district administration pointed out that the growers of the sugarcane and areca were put to hardship on the absence of the reasonable support price to their produce.

It said the lack of crushing facilities had led to a huge loss to the cane growers.

It urged the Government to see that the cane growers were not ruined on account of it.

It pointed out that the areca growers suffered greatly on account of the peculiar disease afflicting the standing trees. The memorandum requested the State Government to offer the compensation of Rs. 50,000 an acre to areca growers and Rs. 20,000 an acre to cane growers considering the huge loss suffered by them.
