What about irrigation water, seeds & loan waiver, demands YCP

Mon, Jun 20, 2016, 06:13 PM
Pooh-poohing the Eruvaka programme of Chandrababu Naidu, YSR Congress has said the TDP government should first categorically state when water would be given to the farmers instead of putting up a photo-opportunity show.

‘Eruvaka by Chandrababu Naidu is ridiculous as he had described agriculture as a wasteful activity. It is being carried out as a photo-opportunity and the government lacks sincerity,' YCP spokesperson K Pardhasarathi told reporters in Hyderabad on Monday.

Instead of making a show by carrying out Eruvaka, Chandrababu Naidu should tell the farmers when the water would be released, how much quantity of seeds would be released and when the farmers' loans would be waived, he said.

Farmers have been pushed into a debt trap due to the faulty policies of the government, he alleged.

Though the kharif season had begun, the irrigation development meetings were not convened and no plan had been finalized which shows the intention of the state government, he added.
