Karimnagar: District Rythu Bandhu Assocition member Tula Manohar have alleged a lot of irregularities at the purchasing centres and alleged a lot of cheating have been done while purchasing the food grains from farmers in Peddapalli.
T Manohar met District collector Siktha Patnail and had submitted the representation and requested to take immediate action against the persons who are responsible for corruption. Speaking on the occasion, T Manohar alleged that the 200 kgs of food grains which are weighed at purchasing centres are weighing 203 kgs to 210 kgs at Miller weigh bridge and instead of giving information to the farmers to whom the food grains belongs, by creating a binami farmer, they are adding the money into his account and later, the people involved in this are distributing the money.
This season, around 1.21,60,000 quintals of food grains were purchased in the district from the farmers. All the food grains which are purchased are sent to the rice millers by loading in around 66,815 lorries by weighing 200 kgs in each lorry. If we calculate excess of just 3 kgs of food grains in each lorry it would be around Rs31 crore, he pointed out.
All that money belongs to farmers. So, a representation is given to the District Collector requesting her to take immediate action, he informed.
