MLC M.C.Nanaiah and former MLC A.K.Subbaiah have pointed out that the governor would be updated shortly with the issue of Nagpur variety of Oranges samplings being
distributed in the district. The issue has already snowballed into a controversy cum possible scam.
NGO’s had previously taken up the issue of the Nagpur Orange samplings being distributed in the disctrict, stating ” the species is not sutiable for cultivation due to the soil and Coorg weather”. They even accused the BJP of underhand dealings in distribution of the samplings.
