Jana Sena expressed profound sympathy to the families of the affected farmers and demanded immediate compensation from the government to the families of these farmers who were mainly dependent on subsistence farming. He urged the three member committee to respond immediately as per the law brought by the government and opined that the systems were failing to perform their duties to prevent the farmer from committing suicide.
The actor turned politician told YSRCP leadership has promised a crop investment of Rs 50,000 per farmer family during the elections and questioned whether it is fulfilled.
