Mahbubnagar: The farmers of Mahbubnagar district have demanded that the State government implement its promise of waiving farm loans immediately and at one go so that farmers reap the benefits or else they would be burdened with the accruing interest on the loans'

Speaking at a programme in Mahbubnagar on Tuesday, Jakkula Venkataiah, Raitanga Samithi State secretary leader, alleged that the State government which had promised to resolve all the problems of the farmers before coming to power has forgotten its promise after it assumed power and has been ignoring the farming community.

"The TRS government has miserably failed in keeping its promises. Even though 10 months have passed since the TRS came to power for the second time in the State, it has not waived farm loans. Even the Rythu Bandhu scheme is not being implemented properly with only a few farmers receiving the benefits and others still running from pillar to post for receiving the benefits," said Venkataiah.

He also demanded the State government to ensure that the farming community are not duped by fake seed sellers and pesticide sellers, who are taking advantage of farmers illiteracy and ignorance and selling them spurious seeds and substandard pesticides. He said that a few companies were selling fertilisers in the name of natural manure at exorbitant rates to the poor farmers and fleecing them.

He demanded the government to take action against all such fake traders and spurious sellers in the district.
