KRRS Honorary President Chamarasa Maali Patil said some individuals had formed splinter groups claiming themselves as Raitha Sangha leaders and have been involved in illegal activities. This has made them to change the flag, logo and name of KRRS and Hasiru Sene. “Our organisation has been fighting for the cause of farmers for the last four decades without any expectations. However, our green shawl is being misused with politicians started wearing it. The politicians wear shawl while taking oath of secrecy as Ministers and throw it later. They do not know the principle and ideology of our organisation. Recently, Minister B.C. Patil faced the heat of farmers for wearing the green shawl during his recent visit to Mysuru.”

Of late, some persons have formed their own groups under the banner of Raitha Sangha and involved in illegal activities. Others are doing worst things and amassing wealth.
