Shimoga: Hitting back at former Prime minister D H Devegowda and his sons for making "unnecessary charges" against his government on farmers issues, Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday asked them to refrain from "shedding crocodile tears" for farmers.

These charges were made without knowing about his efforts to alleviate the sufferings of farming community and "the well appreciated benefits" provided to the farm sector by his government, Yeddyurappa told reporters here today.

Yeddyurappa challenged Gowda and his family to have an open discussion in this regard and asked them to guide the government with proper ideas without creating enmity.

He said the Centre and number of institutions had hailed the famous decisions of his government taken during past one year towards promoting the growth of farmers and farming sector in the state including that of introduction of loan at three per cent interest.

Referring to the recent attack on a church here, Yeddyurappa said there was "a systematic planning" by some unscrupulous elements to disturb social harmony.

He said he had warned senior officials including those in police that he would not hesitate to take action against them if such incidents recurred.
