YSRCP demands strengthening of dairy industry

 Hyderabad, December 11: Criticising the
Congress for its anti-people policies and more so the dairy industry, YSRCP has
demanded that Vijaya Dairy should be strengthened by increasing procurement

While the dairy industry is in distress with
government not procuring milk and paying proper payment, government has been
neglecting the dairy industry and there is every possibility that they declare
a holiday, he said. 

The inefficiency of the State government should
at least now fix a feasible price for procuring milk as many people are
dependent on dairy. 

Government has been boasting of increasing input
subsidies has totally ignored dairy and women organisations who are unable to
get good support price and the dairy industry in distress and is affecting the
rural economy very badly. 

Chandrababu Naidu, during his term has tried his
best to close down Chittoor Dairy, which has a history of flourishing profits.
He has deliberately done it to promote his Heritage Foods and eventually

YSR, who returned to power had contributed his
might to promote dairy and women organisations but the present government has
been totally ignoring core issues, he said. 

Government-run Vijaya Dairy should be immediately
strengthened by increasing the procurement price and save the industry or else
we will take up the issue on a large scale, he said. 

an example, he said Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) requires 4,000 litres
of milk of which it has resources to procure 2,000 litres while the rest is
being purchased from private parties. This contract can be given to Vijaya
Dairy so that the government can benefit, he said.
