Drought-striken farmers of Kadapa district have urged the AP government to declare a crop holiday this year, in view of lack of rains and grant them Rs. 20,000 per acre as aid. Otherwise, they would have to commit suicide, they said. KC canal and Srisailam dam, which are the main source of water for the crops in the district, are completely dry this year.
