Hyderabad: Congress MLA from Sangareddy Assembly constituency T Jagga Reddy on Tuesday said that issues of the farmers would be raised in the upcoming budget session of the Assembly.
Addressing the media, he said that the government failed to implement Rythu Bandhu this year, crop loan waiver was not taken up and compensation to the farmers was not provided. He said that Rythu Bandhu is not reaching most of the farmers. The amounts are given to farmers who have less than 3 acres of land.
He said that crop loan waiver was not taken up though ruling TRS has promised to waive Rs one lakh crop loan in poll manifesto in 2018. He said that compensation was also not provided to families of the farmers who died due to various reasons.
The MLA said that the farmers were not provided with minimum support price to most of the farm products. Cotton, maize, red gram and other crops were not given MSP.
