Bangalore, Jun 4 (UNI) Former Karantaka Chief Minister and JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy today urged the State government to ensure adequate supply of fertilisers to meet the demands of the farmers.
Speaking to newspersons here, Mr Kumaraswamy came down heavily against police lathicharge on farmers who were demanding supply of adequate fertiliser in Hassan district yesterday.
Criticising Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa for answering the demands of farmers through lathis, Mr Kumaraswamy demanded the state government to make necessary arrangements to end scarcity of fertilisers and seeds in the state.
