The Bihar Assembly on Thursday witnessed
uproarious scenes with opposition MLAs alleging irregularities
in distribution and non-payment of subsidy on diesel to
farmers in 26 districts declared drought-hit.
The Centre will provide a Rs 1,000-crore subsidy on diesel to paddy farmers for irrigation during the on-going Kharif season that would provide relief to growers in times of erratic monsoon, Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar said.
