He mentioned how 89,000 tons of sugarcane had been taken from farmers of Gajulamanyam in Chittoor district in 2014015 but compensation of Rs.13.5 crore had never been paid by the Government to 3500 farmers.
He also mentioned that the sugarcane factory had later been shut down, depriving 270 employees of their livelihood and that their salaries of worth Rs.4.5 crore also had been evaded, besides retirement and pension benefits.
