CM KCR cheating farmers, not keeping word: DK Aruna
- DK Aruna fires at KCR for making unilateral decisions and going back later
- KCR insisted on cultivating fine rice variety in the past and he has withdrawn MSP to it
- Why the decision to give Rs 150 as additional MSP to fine rice variety not implemented
- He should also state the reason for closing down procurement centers
Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party National Vice President DK Aruna on Tuesday criticised Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for misleading and threatening farmers of the state to cover up his failures. She alleged that the Chief Minister has been making unilateral decisions.
Addressing the media, at BJP state office, along with party state general secretary Bangaru Sruthi, she alleged that KCR insisted on cultivating fine rice variety in the state in the past and now he has withdrawn minimum support price to it. BJP has warned in the past that regulated cultivation is not feasible and not beneficial to farmers. She questioned KCR as to why the decision to give Rs 150 as additional minimum support price to fine rice variety is not implemented.
Aruna demanded that the Chief Minister to explain the reason behind closing down of procurement centers. "It seems that the centers have been closed down as farmers have been supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The state government wants to create confusion among the farmers by closing down the procurement centers. Rytu Vedikas should be converted into procurement centers.
The Farm Acts are beneficial to the farmers and they would enable use of latest technology. The Chief Minister should explain how the State government suffered losses while Centre has been purchasing paddy and cotton. He should tell how many acres have been irrigated so far under the program of providing irrigation to one crore acres. There is no progress in this regard as the leaders of the government are interested in taking commissions than in sincerely implementing the program," she added.
