The BJP assured to set up a Turmeric Board in Nizamabad in previous general elections.
However, the BJP went back on its promise and now offered an extension centre of the Spices Board. Telangana farmers questioned the rationale of the Modi government for promising the Turmeric Board to Tamil Nadu when Telangana produces more turmeric than Tamil Nadu.
