HYDERABAD: Coming down heavily on the TRS  government for its failure to prevent farmers from committing suicide, Bachao  Telangana Mission president and BJP leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy has alleged that the TRS government had completely neglected the farmers’ community in the state.

Under the Telangana Bachao Mission banner, Janardhan Reddy held a massive dharna at Indra Park here on Sunday.

Even as speculation is rife that Reddy is sulking with BJP leadership and may sever ties with the party, BJP leader K Laxman’s presence in the demonstration proved it wrong. “Does your Bangaru Telangana mean spate of farmers’ suicides?” Nagam  asked KCR.

Speaking on the occasion, Nagam alleged that the Telangana Assembly, in spite of discussing the farmers’ issue for three days, had failed to boost the morale of the farmers in the state. “KCR, please visit farms near your own farm house. You will get to know the sufferings of a poor farmer,” he said.

Expressing concern over the continuous suicides in the state, he demanded that the state government waive off crop loans at one go, instead of repaying it to banks in four instalments.

He also demanded the government to initiate steps to ensure that the farmers get ‘remunerative price beyond the usual support price.’ Nagam also wanted the government to complete the pending irrigation projects before taking up new ones to provide succour to farmers. He demanded that the state government provide `3,000 as drought relief to farmers.
