Hyderabad: State government on Tuesday expressed anger at the Union government for not responding to the request for red gram procurement in additional quantity.
Harish angry over Centre’s attitude
Harish Rao held a meeting with Agriculture Minister P Srinivas Reddy and Marketing Department officials and reviewed the situation. The meeting voiced displeasure over the Centre’s attitude. The Minister expressed his anger at the Union government not responding to the State government’s request.
The Centre, he said, had ordered procurement of 75,000 tonnes of red gram. With increase in yield, the price for the produce had gone down, resulting in farmers being deprived of good price for their produce.
