Telangana Minister for Agriculture Pocharam Srinivas has told the Assembly that real independence is achieved only when the cultivator does not require any more loans. Speaking on farm loans in the Assembly, he criticized the previous governments for not focusing on agriculture and for making false comments that crores of rupees have been given as loans. He stated that giving crores as loans is not important, but the money reaching them and really benefiting farmers is more important. When the farmer no longer asks for loans, then only the problem is solved, he added.
