Warangal, July 8: The minister for agriculture, Mr N. Raghuveera Reddy, and the minister for major irrigation, Mr Ponnala Lakshmaiah, had a tough time in pacifying the irate farmers, who took the ministers to task on the shortage of fertilisers and the irregular power supply. The ministers had an embarrassing time in answering the farmers on various problems at the Rythu Sadassu meet at Agriculture Research Station here on Tuesday. The farmers challenged the agriculture minister to come along with them to the market and find for himself whether the fertilisers were available or not.
