SHRI K.H. MUNIYAPPA (KOLAR): Hon. Deputy-Speaker, Sir, 80 per cent of our country's total population belongs to the farming community. Therefore, I request the hon. Prime Minister, the hon. Finance Minister and the hon. Agriculture Minister to allot 80 per cent of the total Budget for the farming community.

Sir, nowadays, the floods and famine have become a routine feature in one State or the other in our country. Thousands of crores of rupees are being spent every year to curb the problems of floods and famine but nothing concrete is coming out.

Sir, most of the Himalayan peninsula is full of water. Almost, all the northern region rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, and other rivers like Brahamputra are always overloaded, and they are all floods prone rivers whereas all the southern region rivers like Godavari and Cauveri are dry rivers almost all the seasons, there is no water available. In this regard, a project on the linkage of rivers Himalayas, Ganga and Yamuna with the southern region rivers like Godavari and Cauveri is long pending since 1982 with the Government of India. This project should be completed soon. My plea is that if this project is completed, there will bo no floods in the northern India and on the other hand there will be sufficient water in the southern region rivers which remain almost dry every time. If this project is completed, the entire country will be benefited, and our farmers of southern region will also be able to produce sufficient foodgrains with better and better irrigation facilities. With the availability of sufficient water, the farmers of southern India will be able to produce spices crops, coffee and tea in huge quantum. With the result, we may increase export of these products. This way, we can earn more foreign exchange as well.

Sir, 30 per cent of the people of this country have no two square meals. That is why I urge upon that if we have linkage of rivers, we can have the water available everywhere in the country. This way, our farmers will be able to produce more and more foodgrains, and there will not be any shortage of foods. Everybody will have his meals. There will be self-sufficiency in the country.

Sir, half of the area belonging to the southern States, viz., Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu is a dry land area. The farmers there, are living in a very distressing situation. In most parts of Karnataka, especially, in my constituency, Kolar, the water table has gone down by 500 feets to 600 feets. I request that the hon. Agriculture Minister should pay a kind attention to this problem. One remedy to solve the water problem in Karnataka is desiltation of tanks. More than 10,000 tanks in Karnataka are silted. I therefore, request that the Central Government should come out with some concrete proposals, they may take the help of World Bank, if necessary, to take the desiltation of tanks.

Sir, my next point relates to marketing facilities. The Governments in USA, Britain and Holland are giving full protection to their farmers. If there is no market of the products of their farmers, their respective Government will come forward and purchase those products from them in order to save them from hardships. Similarly, our Government also should come forward by way of giving protection to our farmers. This way, our country will be benefited a lot. Prices stability will also remain there.

Lastly, in Karnataka, we are producing a huge amount of vegetables like Potatoes and Onions, and fruits like Mangoes, which are all perishable items. But the problem is that there is no sufficient cold storage facilities available. We want more and more cold storages to be built there to help the farmers. It will also be in the interest of the State.

So, I request that the hon. Agriculture Minister should take some steps to protect the farmers of our country. With these words, I conclude.

If public investment in agriculture is reduced and if the Union Government withdraws its role in regard to public investment in agriculture, that will be a black day for our country.
