AIADMK urges Puducherry govt to declare Karaikal protected

Press Trust of India  |  Puducherry 

Opposition AIADMK in Puducherry on Tuesday urged the Congress government to declare Karaikal region in the Cauvery delta as a 'protected agricultural zone', emulating Tamil Nadu government's initiative.

Leader of the AIADMK legislature wing A.Anbalagan said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami has made an 'historic' announcement that the Cauvery Delta districts would be categorised as "protected agricultural zone" for protection of farm lands and to ensure benefits to farmers.

Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy should also come out with a similar announcement to protect Karaikal, which is in the tail end of Cauvery delta, in the union territory as a protected agricultural zone, he told reporters here.
