NCP says no to separate farm budget

The NCP on Wednesday said it was opposed to a separate agriculture budget, as demanded by the state agriculture minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil.

‘Adequate financial provisions are made for agriculture sector by the Finance ministry. Congress should first allow a separate agriculture budget at the Centre and then follow the pattern in the state,’ NCP spokesman Nawab Malik said.

To a question that Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Vinod Tawde has demanded a separate agriculture budget and written to the chief minister in this connection, Malik said the state cannot be governed on Tawde’s suggestions.
