Karnataka: Farmers have resorted to distress sale of cattle in Hubli in the state of Karnataka due to water scarcity in the area.
Farmers say,”We don’t have anything to feed the cattle.There is no rain,we haven’t been able to sow anything,what will we feed them?We’ve come here to sell our cattle but not getting good price”.
Situation is so grim and distressing that, farmers are selling their livestock for throw away prices.
HD Kumaraswamy (HDK)-led Karnataka government performed poorly in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The coalition has decided to continue under HDK in an informal cabinet meeting on May 24. With the rumours of a few MLAs defecting the JD(S)-Congress combine for BJP doing rounds, the tension is palpable in both camps.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, JD(S) won just one seat in Hassan, a Gowda family stronghold.
