Brokers Flourished and Farmers Troubled in Chandrababu Govt

Kurnool: Farmers plights aggravated in Chandrababu Naidu's government as it supported Commission agents and brokers who involve in the procurement of  agriculture produce from the farming community in Andhra Pradesh. 

As part of Praja Sankalpa Yatra,  YSR Congress Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy interacted with people of Krishnagiri village. Farmers pout out their woes before YS Jagan. They informed YSR Congress leader that commission agents are exploiting them by not giving minimum support price to their produce. The government gave free hand to the brokers who pay only meager price to Pulses,  Cotton, Chilly and other produce.  

YS Jagan alleged that Chandrababu's own company Heritage Foods also capitalised the weakness of  the farmers . The company purchased farm produce at low prices from the farmers and sell the same for profits in the markets.  He said the TDP Chief made a promise of creation of stabilisation fund to provide minimum support price to the farmers. But no action was taken forwards this end for the last four years.  

People also explained the non availability of  pensions, ration cards and housing for poor.  Corrupt practices adopted by Janmabhoomi committees was also discussed int the meeting.
