- Nandini milk is a brand of national and international demand and is available in all states of India and exported to foreign countries.
- The daily production of milk has increased from 84 lakh liters in 2018 to 94 lakh liters currently, indicating the brand value of Nandini has increased.
- Opposition parties in Karnataka, including INC and JDS, are spreading false news about Nandini milk to create confusion among people.
- The Chief Minister strongly condemns such baseless politicization of Nandini milk and calls for people to not believe in false propaganda.
Basavaraj S Bommai, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, has recently expressed his concern over false news being spread about Nandini milk. Nandini milk is a popular dairy brand in Karnataka and has gained national and international recognition. It is available in all states of India and is being exported to foreign countries as well.
He said, in 2018, 84 lakh liters of milk were produced daily, and currently, 94 lakh liters of milk are being produced. This significant increase in production and demand has contributed to the brand’s value and made it a household name in the state.
However, the Chief Minister has accused the Indian National Congress and Janata Dal-Secular of engaging in base politics by spreading false news about Nandini and creating confusion among the people. This accusation comes as a response to the recent protests by these parties against the Karnataka Milk Federation’s (KMF) decision to increase the price of Nandini milk.
Bommai has strongly condemned these political parties’ actions, stating that they are spreading false information and creating confusion among people. He further added that the KMF’s decision to increase the price of Nandini milk was necessary to support the farmers and ensure that they receive fair compensation for their hard work.
The Chief Minister’s statement reflects the growing concern among the people and the government over the spread of false information and propaganda. In recent years, social media has become a powerful tool for spreading fake news and propaganda, which has the potential to create confusion and chaos in society.
Therefore, it is crucial to identify and call out false information and propaganda to ensure that people have access to accurate information. The government, civil society organizations, and individuals must work together to counter the spread of fake news and propaganda and promote media literacy.
