Q.

In north Karnataka, which has been worst hit by the drought, farmers are struggling to make ends meet. They barely have any food for themselves or their cattle, the fields are parched and the water supply is dwindling.

The only way the farmers can earn money is by selling off their cattle and agricultural land. But that also means giving up their only source of livelihood...your views on the state of people of North Karnataka?

Full relief measures are urgently needed.

More employment opportunities must be created .

Drought relief works may be taken up.

Yes this is true. Of course it is for the Karnataka government to address this problem. As per reports they are working out a relief package for the draught hit areas. Sooner they do it the better

The karnataka govt. has come up with relief measures for the draught hit districts, but as we all know how much benefit really reaches the poor farmer, hence suicide rates are high in Karnataka !
