The LDF (Left Democratic Front) government in Kerala is set to introduce a scheme that would support distressed north Indian farmers, according to the state's finance minister Thomas Isaac.
"Kerala's Left govt expresses solidarity with the struggling farmers
of north India, who are reeling under the price crash of farm produce. Our budget announces a scheme for direct purchase of such products from farmers
co-operatives at remunerative prices on a long term contract for public distribution," he said.
