It seems that state minister Harish Rao misunderstood the remarks made by Union Minister Piyush Goyal. He is of opinion that the answers and explanation given by Piyush Goyal to the questions from Rajya Sabha members were insulting to the farmers. Harish Rao demanded that the grain from the Yasangi center should be purchased by the center.
Harish Rao further said that no citizen of Telangana is ready to tolerate the comments made by Union Minister Piyush Goyal, and he also demanded that the minister must apologize to the people of Telangana. He declared that no matter what it takes, he will fight against the center until BJP is defeated and ousted out of the country full-fledgedly.
He lamented that the situation is not the same across different states of the country. He affirmed that the Punjab-like situation won’t happen in Telangana, and stated that it is impossible to grow seed grains in other places as it is done in Telangana state.
The minister further added that the center mustn’t keep any condition like procuring grains from the yasangi farmers only if Telangana farmers are selling the raw rice. He declared that the center is cheating the farmers by promising them double income. Harish Rao questioned why the Center was ignoring the WTO rules all this while.
