PM Modi, in his address to Karnataka farmers, said 3.5 crore farmer have been covered under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (crop insurance scheme), out of which 14 lakh farmers belong to Karnataka.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah responds: "Govt of Karnataka paid 50% of the cost of the PM Fasal Beema Yojana. Ours is the only Govt in the country that has deployed IT to directly pay the insurance amount into farmers' account. Also crop insurance is old UPA scheme. So, have a heart & share credit where it is due," he said in a tweet.
