BANGALORE: Accusing the state government of failing to tackle the drought, former minister H D Revanna said that a JD(S) delegation led by party supremo H D Deve Gowda will meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh soon to press for Central assistance.

“Since Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda is showing no interest to lead the all-party delegation, we have decided to meet the PM and get assistance,” he addressed the media here on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Revanna demanded a probe into the alleged irregularities in the marketing department of Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF). He alleged that the negligence of officials and the government has resulted in milk powder and butter worth `150 crore with the KMF remaining unsold.

“4,000 tonnes of milk powder and 3,200 tonnes of butter are lying unsold in KMF godowns,” he said.
