BENGALURU: The Karnataka State Farmers’ Association has convened a meeting in the city on Tuesday (January 20) in which over 350 farmers are expected to participate.

President of the association, Kodihalli Chandrashekar, told reporters here on Friday that the Centre had passed an executive order last month to ease land-acquisition rules. He said this move would favour the corporate sector.

He said Modi has been “indirectly” favouring genetically modified crops which he had opposed when the UPA was in power.  

He also said that the state government is yet to resolve the sugarcane pricing row.

He said these issues among others will be discussed in the meeting convened at their office in Bengaluru.
