Karimnagar: Purchase food grains from farmers without delay and conditions, demanded Congress senior leader and MLC T Jeevan Reddy at a press meet at R&B guest house in Karimnagar on Tuesday.
The MLC alleged that there are many issues regarding the purchase of food grains from farmers, who produced after facing lot of hardships, investing money by borrowing from others as the government didn't sanctioned Rythu Bandhu to many of them. Stating that due to the recent rains, several farmers lost the standing crops, he demanded that the government must estimate the crop damage and help the farmers, who incurred loss. The rice millers must come forward to purchase the food grains from farmers without restrictions, he asked.
The government must fix minimum support price (MSP) at Rs 5,450 per quintal for cotton and should take steps not to reject cotton that was brought to purchasing centres.
MLC Jeevan Reddy also demanded that the government must waive off farm loans and the bankers must not pressurise the farmers to repay the loan. Moreover, the government did not sanction Rythu Bandhu to many farmers, which should be sanctioned immediately related to Kharif and Rabi seasons to all the farmers, he demanded.
TPCC official spokesperson Komatireddy Narender Reddy, Medipalli Satyam, TPCC secretaries Anjan Kumar, Samad Nawab, U Ravi, Md Taj, Vilas Reddy, Bobbili Victor and Sunkari Ganapathi were present along with others.
