BANGALORE: Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda has reiterated that his government would continue to give prominence to the Agriculture sector and work aggressively for the welfare of the farming community.

Speaking at an interaction meeting with the representatives of the Organic Farmers group organsied jointly by the Karnataka organic Mission and the Agriculture department at Vidhana Soudha, here on Thursday, chief minister said that the government is committed to protect the farming sector.

Sadananda Gowda further said that several pathbreaking programmes including ‘Suvarna Bhoomi’, Bhoo Chethana and farm loan availability with one per cent interest rate have yielded good results.

He however admitted that the government is yet to meet expectations of the growers.

“We are on the right path to fulfil their aspirations,” he said.

Referring to various demands made by the farmers, the CM promised to look into the Suvarna Bhoomi scheme in which government would remit a one-time payment of Rs 10000 to the accounts of the farmers.
