Hyderabad: YSRCP president and leader of opposition YS Jagan announced his
support to the farmers fighting for their crop insurance. He extended his
support to those farmers who had not received the insurance money they
rightfully deserved pertaining to the financial year 2012-13 and now resorted
to direct fight. The farmers of YSR district started to protest in front of the
insurance companies in Hyderabad. The insurance office was full with the huge
number of protesting farmers. YS Jagan reached the place in their support and
spoke to the officials in their defense. He saw that the farmers were given
assurance by the officials.
YS Jagan informed that 55,000 farmers had applied for insurance in the financial 2012-13. He added that 29,000 of them had been granted insurance but the other 26,000 had received nothing. From the sanctioned Rs.135 crore, only Rs.105 crore had reached the farmers while the rest of the money was still pending. Upon asking why the rest of the farmers had not received the amount they deserved, the officials were giving lame excuses like lack of proper information in the application forms, stated YS Jagan. He questioned why the insurance company could not gather the missing details in the last three years when it was a matter of 2-3 months and why they were citing this reason now.
YS Jagan stated that he had already mentioned the agony of the farmers in the assembly. He requested the officials of the insurance companies to stand for the poor farmers. He arranged for the officials to directly talk to the farmers. The officials stated that they had received the applications from the agriculture department in the past and hence this problem rose. They promised that they would work for taking a decision for the alleviation of this issue soon. YS Jagan demanded a solution within the time limit of a month. The farmers expressed their gratitude to YS Jagan for standing by their side.
