CPI district unit leaders Paramesh Goud, S K Mujeeb and others alleged that even though it was more than a week now since the farmers faced huge crop loss due to unseasonal rains, not a single leader from the government visited the farmers to assess the crop loss. “Not a single MLA, MP or MLC have visited the farmers to assess the crop loss in the State.

They have the time to attend the marriages and other events ,but has no time to pay attention to the farmers’ woes in the district,” said Parameshwar Goud, Mahbubnagar CPI district unit secretary, while visiting the mango farmers in Polepally region under Jadcherla mandal on Sunday.
