Kerala govt gave 40 per cent more subsidy on paddy than the centre
CPI(M) leader A Vijayaraghavan in Kochi said,” The farmers are agitating against the stand of the centre which is protecting corporate interests. But the subsidy given by Kerala govt to paddy farmers is 40 per cent higher than what was announced by the centre”. He also said the UDF in Kerala is supporting the anti-farmer stand of the centre. The centre is trying to undermine the progress of the state. The central agencies are being used as part of a conspiracy to undermine the Kerala model. It is supported by the UDF.
