The Union of Bulgaria Farmers demanded Friday two resignations at the Agriculture Ministry, Darik radio reported.

The farmers want the ousting of Deputy Agriculture Minister, Tsvetan Dimitrov, and of the Director of the National Veterinary Service, (NVS), Yordan Voynov.

The Union's Chair, Ivan Chalakov, told Darik the reason is unpaid subsidies over problems and errors at NVS, and accused the two of diverting the money to "other people."

The Union is threatening mass protest rallies right after the winter holidays.
