YSRCP Nagari MLA Roja demanded the state government to clear the debts of the farmers. The YSRCP carried out a dharna near Gajulamandem sugar factory in Tirupathi. Speaking on this occassion, she slammed Chief Minister Chandrababu for his statements on the AP capital.
CM was saying that the AP capital would be developed like Singapore. Singapore city lacks agrculture and irrigation. It seems that Chandrababu too would take steps for eradicating farming sector in AP just like in Singapore, said Roja.
The debts of the sugarcane farmers are not cleared till today. The TDP Government is planning to convert faming lands into business sites by handing over the lands to the real estate business men. Even during his last regime, Chandrababu handed over the Sugar Factories to the private firms, added Roja.
Incontrast, former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy released Rs.300 crores for the clearance of the debts of the sugarcane farmers as soon as he became CM, said Roja.
Chandrababu came to power by making false promises to the people, said Roja. The MLA demanded the Government to buy the price of the Sugarcane at Rs. 3000 per ton.
