Mysuru: The State government has never shied away from protecting the State farmers’ interests. It is committed to put their priorities on top, always, said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

Speaking after inaugurating a training programme of ‘Pashu Sakhi’ and also a new veterinary hospital at Uttanahalli here on Tuesday, CM Siddaramaiah observed that dairy producers must be credited for the constant flow of economic resources in co-operation sector. The milk federations were formed to protect the interests of dairy farmers, he informed. “During my stint as animal husbandry minister, I had strived to strengthen milk federations to avoid bureaucratic highhandedness,” recalled CM Siddaramaiah.

He also recalled the Ksheera bhagya scheme along with ensuring financial assistance of Rs 5 for every litre, when he became the chief minister for the first time.

He hoped that Pashu Sakhi volunteers who will be trained here will be a bridge between dairy farmers and government.

He observed that his schemes implemented as animal husbandry minister have helped him to become chief minister twice and thanked the people of Chamundeshwari, Varuna and Badami for contributing to his political journey.

District In-charge Minister Dr H C Mahadevappa, Animal Husbandry Minister K Venkatesh, former legislator Yatindra Siddaramaiah, legislators C Anil Kumar, D Ravi Shankar, K Harish Gowda, Darshan Dhruvanarayan, G D Harish Gowda and MLCs D Thimmaiah, Marithibbegowda and C N Manjegowda were present.
