‘Protests indicate laxity on part of Government’
Stop blaming the Opposition, says CPI(M)
HUBLI: Communist Party of India (Marxist) has urged the State Government to take steps for ensuring proper distribution of adequate quantity of fertilizers to farmers.
In a release issued here, Dharwad district general secretary of CPI(M) B.S. Soppin has said that the protests over scarcity of fertilizers in the districts of Haveri and Davangere have only indicated that the State Government had not learnt from the last year’s violent protests over fertilizer scarcity in Haveri, which resulted in police firing claiming the lives of two farmers.
Mr. Soppin said that although the State Government had promised to ensure adequate stock of fertilizers before the onset of monsoon, the protests in the two districts had shown that it was false.
He said that instead of blaming the Opposition parties or the Union Government for the scarcity of fertilizers now, the State Government should take steps to solve the problem.
Mr. Soppin stressed the need for reviving the KCC Bank, which would go a long way in solving such problems. If KCC Bank became strong to lend advances to rural agricultural cooperative banks, it would stop farmers from coming in groups to towns for purchase of fertilizers.
