Nellore: Jana Sena Chief K Pawan Kalyan demanded the state government immediately to release financial assistance of Rs. 10,000 to the cyclone-affected farmers across the state. He addressed the media at a hotel in the city on Saturday and said Rs. 35,000 should be supported to the farmers who lost their crops in more than 17 lakh acres.
He said that the state government which promised total prohibition of liquor in the state had finally introduced its own liquor brands and suggested to divert the revenue of Rs. 16,000 Cr for the welfare of the farmers at least a year for their well being. He said Jana Sena cadres are staging protests on Dec 7th supporting the cause of farmers.
Pawan further satirically said that the state government had sponsored various liquor brands like President's Medal, Golden Andhra and suggested to launch YCP special, CM Medal and others for promoting their party image diverting the revenue to the agriculture sector.
He said they had thought the state would be happy with 151 legislators from the YSR Congress where they transform the state as the Golden Andhra, but the ruling government had simply introduced a liquor brand. He said they are for the farmers and would raise their issues continuously. He asked the government to extend financial assistance to the farmers whose lands have faced erosion due to flash floods under various river belts.
Jana Sena Chief also said they had a political tie-up with the BJP and would finalize contesting the bypolls of the Tirupati LS constituency through a coordination committee which would be formed shortly. He welcomed the possible political debut of Kollywood superstar Rajinikanth as he is having the huge number of fans across the country. Party leaders Nadendla Manohar, Satya, Sivasankar, Manukranth Reddy, Vinod Reddy and others were present.
