He added that though his MPs have tried a lot to work for the benefit of farmers the Siddaramaiah government has been apathetic to the issue. He further stated that farming is dependent on nature and a holistic approach is needed for the development be it irrigation, soil conservation or the protection of crops for nature does not work according to the government’s schedule. He said that his government has ensured schemes and their timely delivery for every stage in the crop cycle.

He added that his government has completed works on irrigation within 25-30 months which were pending since over three decades.
