District Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha and Hasiru Sene president D R Duggappa Gowda has warned of laying siege to Suvarna Soudha in Belagavi during special legislature session beginning on November 21. He told reporters that they have also decided to stage an aggressive protest as the govenment is not taking any steps to solve the problems of the farmers. Duggappa Gowda said more than 1,500 farmers have committed suicide. Malnad and arid regions are reeling under drought. Crops like coffee, cardamom, paddy and coconut have already dried, pushing farmers who have borrowed loan from cooperative societies and also banks to the brink of uncertainty. The condition of the people and the livestock is no different as food and drinking water have remained a mirage.
