TRS minister Harish Rao met Secretary S.K. Panda at Delhi and urged him to increase the remuneration to cotton farmers to Rs. 5,000. Requesting him to support the cotton farmers, he urged that the Cotton Corporation of India (CCI) should buy cotton even with 20 per cent moisture. Uptil now only 12 per cent moisture is allowed, he said. He also pleaded for more number of CCI godowns in the state.
