SHRI C. SREENIVASAN (DINDIGUL): Mr. Deputy-Speaker, Sir, thank you very much for giving me this opportunity.
A strange disease has affected the coconut trees in my constituency in Dindigul as also in Attur, Nilakottai, Cholavandan, Usilampatti, Thirumangalam and in nearby districts in Tamil Nadu. I request the hon. Minister for Agriculture to undertake an aerial spraying exercise in Tamil Nadu for saving the coconut trees. I also request the Government to provide special compensation to farmers in Tamil Nadu as well as in my constituency Dindigul whose coconut trees have been affected by this disease. Thank you, Sir.
