Farmers may become financially secure if they fix own price: Nandini Jayaram

Farmers can be financial­ly strong only when the time comes for them to fix their own price for the crop they grow, said Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha Mahila president Nan­dini Jayaram, here recently.

She was speaking after inaugurating the Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha Mahila Sangha unit at Benkipura vil­lage in the taluk.

Reacting to the rise in suicide cases among men farmers when compared to women farmers, Nandini Jayaram said that women were stronger in tackling is­sues and added that for a man it is difficult to lead a solitary life, but there are nu­merous examples of single woman braving the odds to emerge successful in life.

Nandini Jayaram called upon women farmers to unite to become more knowledge­able and educate more wom­en. Women farmers should lend full support to raithasangha to secure more ben­efits from the government, she added.

State Raitha Sangha gen­eral secretary Badagalapura Nagendra said that farmers have staged protest against `pan culture’ and these days villages do not retain their originality, instead have be­come ‘lame and blind villag­es.’ Nowadays we lend rice to our neighbours and then stand in front of their houses with a begging bowl for our meals,” he added. “Farmers should extend support to raitha sangha to secure their future.”

Hosuru Kumar, Ash­wathnarayan Raje Urs, K M Puttaswamy, Hosakote Basavaraju, District Mahila President Nethravathi, taluk mahila president Nethravathi Eeregowda and taluk presi­dent Benkipura Chikkanna also spoke.
