VIJAYAWADA: Andhra Pradesh Rythu Sangam urged Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu to fulfill the promises made by TDP during election campaigning.

In a memorandum, the association demanded that the government immediately waive all the loans taken by the farmers since the banks were granting loans to those who cleared the already pending ones.

The compensation for crop loss due to Phailin cyclone and other calamities was not yet released by the government, they said. A total of Rs 105 crores should be given to 2,52,000 farmers in Krishna district.

The farmers association requested that the government extend the last date to pay the premium for crop insurance from July 31 to August 15, as the crop insurance scheme is applicable for those who cleared the loans.

The Rythu sangam also demanded that the government should take steps for uninterrupted power supply for seven hours to the agricultural sector immediately.
