Turmeric farmers of Nizamabad have not been receiving payments from commission agents at the District Agricultural Market Yard for a while now.
It may recalled in the 2019 Parliamentary elections, several farmers filed mass nominations to highlight their demand for a special turmeric board and MSP for turmeric.
The saffron party has, in the manifesto, promised to establish a Tumeric Board in Tamil Nadu to resolve the issues being faced by farmers.

Responding to Uttam, Union Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala reiterated that the spices board was already handling nearly 50 spices including turmeric.
However, Arvind, via a tweet, claimed that the turmeric farmers had benefited from the spices board and mentioned other steps taken by the Centre for farmers.
