While the Telangana state government is distributing free fish and shrimp fry for the development of fishermen, some illegals are colluding and releasing substandard fish and shrimp fry. The angry fishermen blocked the distribution program of shrimp fry saying that they do not even know how many lakhs of fry are actually being released.
Some fishermen are expressing their grievances that injustice is being done to them in the distribution of fish and shrimp fry by the Telangana state government in the Vaira reservoir of Khammam district to help the fishermen financially.
It seems that about 45 days ago, 14 lakh fish fry were to be released to the fishermen in the Vaira Reservoir area, but only 18 thousand fish fry was released.
Today seven lakh and 14 thousand baby shrimps are being released and arranged to be distributed by MLA Ramulu Naik as the chief guest. However, the fishermen have expressed their concern that they are not releasing the quality fish and shrimp fry that they expected.
They were angry that some officials colluded with the contractor and were releasing poor-quality fish and shrimp. With the suspension of the Fisheries Department officials from Khammam as a special officers, there was a situation where the shrimp babies brought by the contractor had to be taken back within ten minutes of the start.
Some of the fishermen are expressing their grievances saying that in the past, wrong calculations have been made and the shrimp and fish fry have not been brought to the expected level, but the fishermen are left with losses.
