Pay compensation for crop loss, says YSRCP

Press Release

Hyderabad, March 1: YSR
Congress has demanded the State government to compensate the loss incurred by
farmers due to the heavy power cuts and tender an unconditional apology for
going back on the promise of providing seven hour power supply.

“It is very inhuman on part of
the government to blatantly impose power cuts at a time when the crops are
about to be harvested. The State should pay adequate compensation for the damage
of crops besides tendering an apology,” Party MLA G Srikanth Reddy told
reporters here on Friday.

The State Government has been
very harsh on farmers and has burdened all sections heavily with its wrong
policies. It could not provide adequate power in monsoon itself as it was
groping in darkness with inefficiency and indifference, he said.

The power crisis is the making
of the State Government itself as it lacked foresight and could not persuade
the Centre for increasing the gas quota to improve power generation, he said
adding that the other alternative for the State is to agree and own up its
failure and openly appeal to the people to make alternative arrangements. 

The state has plunged into
darkness like never before with the Government announcing official power cuts
which will directly affect, agriculture, industry, education and other sectors,
he said.

The official machinery is
being heavily misused and sincere officers are under duress as it was evident
in the Kadapa cooperative elections. Even when an election official was
kidnapped, no case was booked and this shows the state of affairs, he said.

It was only YSR who had
brought the state from the brink of collapse due the wrong policies of
Chandrababu Naidu to a vibrant economy and shaped a welfare state. The Kiran
Kumar Reddy government is on the lines of the TDP rule and only YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy can bring back the golden era back, he said.

Though Chandababu Niadu is
going on a promising spree in his padayatra announcing sops to minorities and
BCs, people are not in a position to believe him as his nine year term has no
records of taking care of the weaker sections.

It was YSR who had raised the
hopes among the marginalized sections of the society which was the reason why
people voted Congress for the second term in the hope that YSR would continue
all the welfare schemes.

The Congress government has
diluted all his schemes and has been very callous towards, agriculture and
industry, he said.
