YSRCP seek to check price rise with direct procurement

YSR Congress had demanded the TDP government to initiate steps to ensure direct procurement of produce from farmers and ensure the checking of the prices of essential commodities.

Party senior leader and former minister Botsa Satyanrayana deplored as farmers and consumers are bearing the brunt with the MSP being far less that the input cost for farmers and the prices of essential commodities sky-rocketing and the State showing no concern towards the people’s issues.

He accused that the Government has been neglecting the farm sector totally and the farmer who is bearing the brunt from lack of bank loans, to lack of rains, hike in prices of fertilizers and no sight of procurement facilities should be given a bonus of Rs 200 per quintal besides eliminating middlemen and directly procuring the produce.

‘We will stage dharnas at all the Tehsil offices in the State on November 2 and submit a memorandum highlighting the failures of the government and demanding proper measures to address the problems of the farmers and consumers, he said.
