NIZAMABAD : Farmers in the district are happy at Telangana government’s plans to handover the Nizam Coperative Sugar Factory (presently Nizam Deccan Sugars Ltd) to farmers to be run in a co-operative format.

TRS leader and Nizamabad MP K Kavitha, in the presence of TJAC chairman professor M Kodandaram, recently announced that the state government has paid `60 crore to sugarcane farmers to clear pending bills. She added that the government is searching for solutions to solve the issue of the employees of NCSF.

Bharathiya Kisan Sangh national secretary K Sai Reddy, welcoming the MP’s statement, advised farmers of Nizam Sugar Factory (NSF) in Bodhan to come forward to run the factory under the cooperative sector.

“If the government really wants to hand over NSF units to farmers, they should first reopen the NCSF unit which is the only cooperative unit in the entire state. It would help in raising the confidence of NSF farmers to come forward,” Reddy explained.

Nizamabad rural MLA Bajireddy Govardhan and district collector Dr Yogita Rana have already sent proposals to the state government for reopening NCSF.  All local body representatives are eagerly awaiting government’s nod over the issue. “At least now the government should take a policy decision about reopening NCS and NSF units,”

they said. NCSF covers 110 villages and has 382 shareholders. More than 40 villages supply sugarcane to the NCSF.
