Congress leaders Bhatti Vikramarka and Uttam Kumar Reddy were incensed that the central and state governments were betraying Telangana farmers. Congress leaders participating in the ‘Hanmakonda Raitu Sangharshana Sabha’ commented that ‘the Warangal Sabha will go down in the history. Farmers are angry that the sharp rise in petrol, diesel, and fertilizer prices is putting a strain on their crops.
The Congress leaders stated that PM Modi keeps boasting about doubling the income of farmers, while in reality, the BJP administration had reduced farmers’ incomes and increased expenditure. Rahul Gandhi stated that Telangana is the only state in the country that does not implement crop insurance. He made sensational remarks that KCR had cheated them by saying that it would increase reservations for Muslims.
“We are issuing warnings that there is no point in harassing Congress workers,’ he said, adding that the central and state governments did not care if the chili farmers suffered due to eczema this year. He was outraged that the government had not talked about debt forgiveness for four years.
One thing everybody agrees on is the way the Warangal session was conducted. The kind of crowd, and the applause Rahul Gandhi has received from the attendees. Congress activists and members believe that the meeting will go down in the history as one of the finest ones. Rahul made it clear that this assembly was the first to bring Congress to power in the state. He said the farmers were ready to appeal to the TRS government. It is alleged that KCR has spent lakhs of crores in the name of irrigation projects. Lakhs of crores were spent but not a single acre was irrigated.
