MLA pulls up Horticulture Dept. officials for not releasing funds to lemon growers
By Thehindu 30-Jun-2019
During the meeting, he wanted to know why the department had not released funds despite the government issuing an order to pay ₹100 per plant to farmers whose crop withered away.
“This matter was discussed six months ago. But till today, you are busy only in correspondences with no result on the ground,” he told officials of the department. “The government has ordered the grant of ₹2 crore through the Lemon Development Board and even that has not been distributed among the farmers of Indi taluk. I think my mistake was to fight to get the Board constituted as it is doing nothing for farmers,” he said.
District in-charge secretary Mohammed Mohsin, Deputy Commissioner Y.S. Patil, and even Home Minister M.B. Patil tried to convince him that the matter is pending with the department. Mr. Patil said that in a week the issue should be resolved and the funds should be released to the farmers.
