Kolhapur: Forced Natural Farming Instead of Chemical Fertilizers in Sri Lanka. This created a food crisis in that country. In India, the central government drastically increased the prices of chemical fertilizers. Raju Shetty, leader of the Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana, told reporters here on Saturday (May 21) that the price of chemical fertilizers should be reduced if the situation in India is not like that in Sri Lanka.

Raju Shetty said: “The policies of the central and state governments are responsible for the continuous flooding. After floods, there is a tendency to seek compensation. Farmers must pay crop insurance to obtain adequate compensation. Its cost must be shared by the government and the farmers. Agriculture in Kolhapur and Sangli districts have been devastated by floods twice in the last three years, in 2019 and last year.”

“Basically, the work done by the central and state governments in the name of policy development is responsible for the flooding,” he said. After the floods subside, farmers receive little assistance in the name of compensation. The agitation against him is ignored. As an alternative to this, farmers should no longer have to pay compensation to the government, but should get money from insurance companies,” Raju Shetty demanded.
