HD Kumaraswamy Meets PM Modi

By Preeti Sigh On 15 Jun, 2019

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sought central assistance to the state reeling under severe drought due to 45 per cent shortfall in the rainfall. Before the Lok Sabha polls, the state government in its memorandum to the centre had sought a financial assistance of Rs. 2,064 crore to provide relief to farmers hit by drought during the rabi season. Mr Kumaraswamy also requested PM Modi to ensure the pending funds under MNREGA scheme are released at the earliest besides sharing the state government's success in implementing the farm loan waiver, an official statement said. In the meeting, the Karnataka chief minister informed PM Modi that the state was facing drought this year too because of 45 per cent shortfall in rainfall. "The CM requested the prime minister to come forward to help the state in this situation," the statement added.
