Crop loss of 35,000 crore in 2023; expect for better in 2024: CM Siddaramaiah

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said on Monday that the state had a crop loss of 35,000 crore in 48 lakh hectares owing to the drought and that government relief would be insufficient if nature did not cooperate.

Continuing the New Year Speaking to senior government secretaries who met with him today, the chief minister expressed optimism that 2024 would be a prosperous year for the state

"Due to the drought, we have suffered a crop loss of 35,000 crore across 48 lakh hectares in the state." Government assistance will be insufficient if nature does not back us. We are in this scenario as a result of climate change. Monsoon rains are projected to be plentiful in 2024. "I pray to God for a good monsoon," he remarked after greeting government secretaries.

Siddaramaiah emphasized that the severity of the drought was reduced as a result of the state government's poll assurances.

Rain, according to the chief minister, is required for development to meet expectations. Agriculture employs more than 60% of the population.

"The severity of the drought has been reduced due to our guarantees."
