Should Punjab CM Compensate Farmers in Telangana

Should Punjab CM Compensate Farmers in Telangana, when KCR choses to dubiously help Punjab Farmers with vested interests?

– AICC spokesperson Dr Dasoju Sravan censured Telangana CM KCR for planning a new political drama in the name of nationwide tour, while neglecting the urgent issues plaguing Telangana farmers. He questioned the real intention of TRS supremo behind meeting families of Punjab farmers who lost life during nationwide protest against farm laws, while turning a blind eye to about 8400 farmers suicides in Telangana. Dr Sravan demanded KCR to first pay Rs 6 lakh compensation according to GO 194 to Telangana farmers, before compensating Punjab farmers.

– “During his Deeksha in Delhi, KCR announced that he would procure all the paddy within a week. But it has been more than 40 days and not even 40 percent of paddy has been procured. Farmers are facing severe troubles due to unseasonal rains as paddy is getting damaged due to rains. Instead of touring India for personal political ambitions, KCR should immediately focus on completing paddy procurement,” demanded Dr Sravan

– Senior Congress leader also demanded CM KCR to immediately waive farm loans to the tune of about Rs 20,389 Cr, as promised during 2018 polls. He warned that Congress would expose the crooked politics of KCR in case of farmers issues during the Rythu Rachabanda program.

AICC spokesperson Dr Dasoju Sravan censured Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao for planning a new political drama in the name of nationwide tour, while neglecting the urgent issues plaguing Telangana farmers. Dr Sravan highlighted the double standards and indifference of CM KCR in case of farmers issues, questioning the real intention of TRS supremo behind meeting families of Punjab farmers who lost life during nationwide protest against farm laws, while turning a blind eye to about 8400 farmers suicides in Telangana. Dr Sravan demanded Telangana CM to stop doing petty politics over farmers issues and immediately address the pressing issues being faced by Telangana farmers.

“Telangana CM KCR who can make even Machiavelli shameful in cheating people, is coming up with a new political drama. He is saying that he will console the families of Punjab farmers who lost lives during the nationwide protest against Farm Laws and offer compensation. It is extremely ridiculous that CM KCR who has turned a blind eye to about 8400 Telangana farmers, who committed suicide due to farm distress, is moved by the difficulties of Punjab farmers. If KCR was really so concerned about Punjab farmers, why did he support Farm Laws brought in by PM Modi and why didn’t he condemn attacks on farmers during the protests? This is nothing but the heights of crooked politics. KCR is trying to earn a space in national politics using farmers as pawns,” fired Dr Dasoju Sravan speaking in Hyderabad on Friday.

Dr Dasoju Sravan demanded CM KCR to focus on the urgent issues plaguing Telangana farmers instead of wasting public money to further his national politics desire.
“During his Deeksha in Delhi, KCR announced that he would procure all the paddy within a week. But it has been more than 40 days and not even 40 percent of paddy has been procured. Farmers are facing severe troubles due to unseasonal rains as paddy is getting damaged due to rains. Instead of touring India for personal political ambitions, KCR should immediately focus on completing paddy procurement. Before offering compensation to Punjab farmers, KCR should first offer Rs 6 lakh as compensation for about 8400 Telangana farmers who committed suicide in KCR’s eight-year-rule accoridng to GO 194.” demanded Dr Dasoju Sravan.

Highlighting the inaction and carelessness of KCR towards farmers issues, Dr Dasoju Sravan warned that Congress will expose the failure of TRS through its statewide Rythu Rachabanda program.

“KCR has cheated Telangana farmers in every possible way. He is going all the way to Punjab to enact a political drama. But he did not have the heart to console Byagari Narsimlu, farmer from his own Siddipet district, who committed suicide recording it on a selfie video. KCR Sarkar did not even compensate for crop losses due to unseasonal rains in 2020. KCR has also backtracked on his promise of loan waiver. He came back to power in 2018 promising that about Rs 20,389 Cr farm loans would be waived. But it has been more than three and half years and not even one crop loan has been waived. KCR has completely ignored crop loan waiver. As a result farmers are facing severe problems with banks. As banks are not offering new loans, farmers are forced to go to private money lenders and get loans at higher interest rates. KCR should immediately take steps to waive farm loans in one go. As the Kharif season is nearing CM should conduct a meeting with bankers and take up the issues of farmers loans,” demanded Dr Dasoju Sravan.
