H.D. Kumaraswamy, working president of the Janata Dal (Secular), has said that his party is committed to fixing remunerative prices for farm produce.

Speaking at the Sarva Dharma Sammelan and a mass marriage ceremony organised by H. Shivappa Abhimanigala Balaga in Harihar on Sunday, he said that farmers were being exploited as successive governments had failed to fix a remunerative price for their produce. What would happen to food security if farmers started leaving villages in the next few years, he asked and stressed the need to fix remunerative prices for farm produce.

If voted to power in the forthcoming Assembly polls, the Janata Dal (Secular) would take steps to provide permanent irrigation facility all over the State, he said.

Mr. Kumaraswamy claimed that his party had drawn up an action plan for several welfare schemes for poor people, widows and unemployed youth.

He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party had betrayed people and urged voters to be judicious in exercising their franchise.

Advocate and former principal of R.L. Law College S.H. Patel, Madhu Bangarappa, H.Anjaneya, H. Shivappa, H.S. Shivashankar, Naganagowda and Vanamala Shivappa were present.
