Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu assured farmers of providing sustained assistance to bail them out of losses if his party was voted to power in 2014 elections.

He promised to waive their loans provide adequate water for irrigation through the high-level canal (HLC) of Tungabhadra.

On the 15th day of his yatra, Naidu said that drought conditions were prevailing in Kurnool district constantly. "This is pushing farmers into more debts," he said.

Naidu underlined the importance of linking up agriculture with the NREGS. This will help the farming sector, he said.

He said he would give priority to supply of adequate drinking and irrigation water. In what seemed to be a response to TRS leader Etela Rajender's remarks on Sunday that the TDP chief and late chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy's daughter Sharmila were hungry for power, Naidu said that he had taken up the padayatra to personally know about people's problems. "I am not hungry for power," he said.
