Haveri: The infrastructure at the international level will be provided in Byadgi Taluk of Haveri District, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking after inaugurating and laying foundation stones for the slew of developmental works of various departments here on Wednesday February 1, he said in Byadgi Taluk, chilli, vegetables and jawar are grown. The processing units need to be constructed for value addition. The government will encourage this. Around one lakh hectares of land are irrigated in the district and the present government has given top priority to permanent works. “Under the Raitha Shakti programme, Rs. 392.51 Crore has been transferred to the bank accounts of farmers through DBT and Rs. 460 Crore has been distributed to 11 lakh children under the Raitha Vidya Nidhi scheme. These facilities have been provided without inviting applications from the beneficiaries,” he said.

He further said that as many as 6 lakh agricultural labourers have been identified of which nearly 2 lakh kinds are in the various stages of education.

“Already, the Vidya Nidhi money has been released to 47,747 students. Farmers give food if they are strengthened and the country will become self-reliant with self-respect. The Union Budget has given a lot of impetus to agriculture and reserved Rs. 1.5 lakh Crore for this sector. Besides, Rs. 5300 Crore has been given for the Upper Bhadra Project. My sincere thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for fulfilling this promise,” said Bommai.

Grants to establish processing units for crops

Bommai said the government will pay the additional premium of crop insurance worth Rs. 750 Crore on behalf of farmers and this proposal was okayed on Tuesday. “Under Union Government’s Kisan Sanman scheme, Rs. 15,000 Crore has been provided to farmers. In the coming days, more facilities will be provided to the farming community. Approval has been given for improving education, health, roads, and tanks in Byadgi Taluk. The grants will be provided in the coming budget for the degradation of Motebennur Primary Health Centre as the Community Health Centre. “We are ready to give all kinds of assistance to set up the processing units for crops of this region,” Bommai added.

Opening of medical college soon

The CM said 12 cold storage units were established in the State and approval will be given for the additional grants for the generator sets. Byadgi Town must grow and development works will be taken up in Basaveshwara Nagar and Main Road. The wheel of development must continue. The medical college will be inaugurated soon. The incumbent government has established medical and engineering colleges, improved irrigation facilities, and set up mega-dairy, mega APMC, and Textile Park in the Haveri district.

Rs. 1,614 Crore worth of projects for the Haveri District

Bommai said the previous CM had charged that he did nothing for the Haveri District. “Even I know how to give back reply politically. During the previous government, Rs. 271 Crore had been given for irrigation projects for the entire Haveri district of which Rs. 200 Crore didn’t come. Our government has given Rs. 1,614 Crore exclusively for irrigation schemes. “The soil of the district is very fertile and providing irrigation will help to grow good crops. The Upper Bhadra project was started in 1994 and the Irrigation Minister H. K. Patil had said that he will pass through the Haveri district only after the completion of this project. However, the project did not start till 2008. When I was Water Resources Minister, officials informed me that it will take two years for the completion,” he added.
