Bangalore, Sep 7 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today opposed the proposed hike in milk price by the Karnataka Milk Federation saying it would a burden on consumers.
Mr Yeddyurappa told reporters after meeting Governor Rameshwar Thakur this morning that his government would not agree to the hike in milk prices.
Expressing surprise over the 'sudden loss' reported by KMF as reason for the hike, he said it should learn to control its expenditure.
The government was already providing a subsidy of Rs two a litre of milk to farmers and in this background, his government would not tolerate the hike.
To question, he said meeting with the Governor was a courtesy call.
He briefed him about the implementation of the Budget programmes in the last 100 days of his government's rule.
