Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Feb 11 (ANI): Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) S Ramadoss on Tuesday said that in order to double farmers' income, agriculture should grow at the rate of 6 per cent.
Addressing a press conference here, he said that the shadow budget of his party shows the PKM is working for a development agenda.
