Hubbali: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President DK Shivakumar interacted with the farmers of Hubli-Dharwad on Monday and heard the issues & the hardship they have been facing during these Covid times.

Addressing the media, Shivakumar said,” Our farmers are struggling every day for every small thing in this hour of crisis. Their vegetables, fruits & other produce is rotting as they get just a two-hour window between 6-8 AM to sell their produce. Karnataka’s Chilli, is amongst the best in the country but our farmers are unable to sell it.Last year, the Congress party workers helped the farmers by buying their farm produce across the state wherever possible and also assisted them financially.”

“The Government is giving permission to Liquor sellers till evening but they are not giving enough time to farmers to sell their produce,” he added
