Khammam: The national vice-president of All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) Sarampalli Mallareddy demanded the State government to allot the Rythu Bandhu Scheme to the tenant and podu farmers present across the State.
The District Committee meeting of Telangan Rythu Sangham was held under the leadership of Bandi Ramesh here at Sundaraiah Bhavan in Khammam on Monday. Participating in the District Telangana Rythu Sangham where he was the chief guest, S Mallareddy alleged that the State government was not identifying the tenant and podu farmers who were cultivating the crops as farmers and by not implementing the Rythu Bandhu Scheme to the tenant and podu farmers, the State government was doing injustice to them.
He said that the tenant and podu farmers are the actual persons who were cultivating the crops and not the owners. What was the use of sanctioning of money under RBS to the land owners instead of sanctioning to the farmers who are cultivating the crops, he questioned.
Investing large amounts of money, cultivating the crops facing lot of hardships with no support from the government and no profits, many tenant and podu farmers committed suicide in the past and may continue in the future also, Mall Reddy added.
He demanded the government to implement the RBS scheme to the tenant and podu farmers and pay the compensation to the farmers who faced loss due to unexpected rains that occurred recently in the district. The AIKS District General Secretary Madineni Ramesh and members Nunna Nageshwar Rao, Ponnam Venkateshwar Rao, and others were present on the occasion.
