Bengaluru: On a day when the BJP-led NDA government is organising 'Kisan Kalyan Karyashala' across the country at block-level, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the workers of the state BJP's farmers cell.
Addressing the workers via his app, PM Modi accused the Karnataka government of being apathetic towards farmers.
“Due to the apathy of Karnataka government, farmers in the state have not got the benefit of 'Fasal Bima Yojna'. A sensitive govt, which works for the development of farmers is needed in Karnataka,” the Prime Minister said.
PM Modi also said,"We have increased Minimum Support Price (MSP) for notified crops to at least 1.5 times that of the production cost."
In poll-bound Karnataka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched his election campaign.
