Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat is today clarifying that the additional $500 million promised for agriculture was budgeted.
The Minister was responding to claims from opposition members that the allocation was not a part of this budget.
Speaking on CNC3’s The Morning Brew today he said the money is there and the opposition could have asked him this question during the Standing Finance Committee of Parliament but didn’t.
He, however, pointed them to ”Head 18 Ministry of Finance under the line item Support for Farmers.”
He said the allocation of $499 million is located there.
