HYDERABAD: Stating that the fate of farmers had not changed in the State, BJP State president Bandi Sanjay Kumar questioned whether Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was cultivating ganja in his farmhouse as the latter claimed to earn `1 crore per acre. Sanjay was speaking at the Kisan Morcha State committee meeting held at Yadagirigutta on Sunday. Addressing the gathering, Sanjay said that he had prayed to Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy to change the CM’s anti-farmer stance. He said the Chief Minister was sloppy even when the farmers were going through distress.
Slamming Rao for not implementing waiver of crop loans, Sanjay said the farmers were continuing to commit suicides even after the formation of a separate State and were being arrested and jailed for asking for their entitlements. He said the CM had betrayed the farmers by promising free fertilisers.
Affirming that the BJP would come to the rescue of farmers as and when needed, Sanjay said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government had been giving many subsidies to the farmers and transferring money into their accounts under the Kisan Samman scheme.
“KCR is just a broker of the Telangana State. He has done nothing for the State. All welfare schemes are being implemented by the Centre. We will put on the fight till we achieve Rythu Rajya in the State,” Sanjay said. He also slammed the State government for not issuing compensation to those who had given their lands.
