Will convene all-party meeting before February 5 on Mahadayi: CM
Congress party’s chief whip in the assembly Ashok Pattan had arranged the meeting between the Cm and the farmer leaders in Mysuru. Stating that he would convince BJP leaders to participate in the all-party meet, Siddaramaiah said, “I wish Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervenes in the issue.”
Siddaramaiah said that the state government would not oppose the statewide bandh called by Kannada organisations on January 25. “The organisations wanted to hold the bandh on January 27. But I convinced them to advance it to January 25,” he added.
Sobaradamath told TOI after his meeting with the CM that the farmers had placed three demands, including seeking intervention of AICC president Rahul Gandhi in the issue.
