Sharmila interacts with farmers,women

YSR Congress Party
president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s sister and daughter of YSR, Sharmila visited
banana and cheeni orchards and cotton fields on the fourth day of her Maro
Praja Prashthanam on Sunday in YSR (Kadapa) district and met with the farmers
to find out their problems.

Speaking at impromptu
public meetings, Sharmila lambasted the Kiran Kumar Reddy Government for not
doing anything to the farmers who are suffering financially following the
withering of their orchards and cotton fields.

During the 16.2 km
padayatra on the fourth day covering the villages of Chinnarangapuram, Chinna
Kudala Cross, Pedda Kudala Cross, Lingala and Lopatnutala, Sharmila continued
to interact with various sections of people.

At most of the
villages, women told her they are not getting proper drinking water supply and
at times they are supplied with contaminated water.

She was accompanied by
Vijayamma, party leader Vasireddy Padma and other local leaders of the area.
Sharmila retired for the day at Lingala.

At Chinnarangapuram,
she visited the cheeni and banana orchards apart from cotton fields and
examined the withered crops. Almost all the orchards and the cotton fields
looked withered due to lack of power supply coupled with insufficient rains.

Several farmers met her
and explained that no official from the agricultural department had visited the
fields despite several requests. “No official visited us despite the orchards
and cotton fields going dry due to pest attacks, lack of rains and power,” they
told her.

Sharmila assured them
YSRCP would take care of their problems when it came to power.
