Addressed a huge gathering of Areca nut growers in Shivamogga (Karnataka)

Addressed a huge gathering of Areca nut growers in Shivamogga (Karnataka). In the last five years the way Siddaramaiah government had been working, it has fully stopped the development in the state of Karnataka.
25% of the total production of Areca nut in the world is produced in the state of Karnataka but the Siddaramaiah government has failed to protect the farmers’ interests.
While Congress policies ignored the interests of Supari farmers of Karnataka, Modi govt increased the minimum import price for Areca nut from Rs.162/kg to Rs. 251/kg after coming to power at the centre.
