TPCC chief Revanth Reddy said the people of Telangana will oust Chief Minister KCR just the way they did with the Nizam rulers. He spoke to the media at Gandhi Bhavan, where he stated that he and his party- Congress are awaiting the upcoming elections this year and is confident of Congress coming to power. He said that it was the Congress party that made KCR step down and procure the grains from the Yasangi farmers.
Revanth said that some farmers lost out by selling the crop at a low price, while others incurred losses by not even cultivating anything in their lands. On behalf of the Congress party, he demanded compensation of Rs 15,000 per acre for farmers who didn’t do any crop by listening to KCR’s words. Also, he demanded to give a 600 rupees bonus to farmers who sold their grains at a low price. He further stated that the Millers collaborated with the government bodies and had conspired together to the tune of Rs 3,000 crore and that the rice that was originally supposed to make it to FCI is been exploited.
Discussing the conditions of farmers in Telangana, Revanth bashed KCR, accusing him of being a power maniac and a thief. He demanded a CBI probe into the irregularities in the grains trade, and the disappearance of rice. Revanth also stated that according to the National Crime Bureau, 8,000 farmers have committed suicide in Telangana. Meanwhile, as per the insurance notices data of farmers issued by the government, more than 82,000 farmers had died ever since the formation of a seperate Telangana state.
Revanth Reddy warned Khammam Minister Puvvada Ajay to stay within limits with regard to his words and actions. He criticized the continuous harassment of his party members and leaders by filing fake cases against them and mentioned that there will be a time when Congress activists will dominate the ground. He said that Rahul Gandhi will visit Telangana on May 6 and 7 to participate in the meeting held at Warangal on the 6th, where they will discuss farmers’ conflicts. Revanth concluded that Rahul Gandhi will expose the corruption activities of KCR.
