Bidar: Naranja Co-operative Sugar Factory Chairman D.K. Siddharam implored his political adversaries, saying, “Ask for my resignation if needed, but protect the factory”.
He made these remarks during the 38th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Naranja Co-operative Sugar Factory, held in the vicinity of Janwada, Bidar taluk, on Monday. Siddharam stressed the importance of preventing the factory’s closure to avoid adverse consequences for the district’s farmers.

The factory’s sugarcane crushing season is scheduled to commence in early November. Contracts for harvesting and transporting sugarcane have already been finalized with contractors, he noted.
