Farmers Can't Draw Their Own Money?

Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy expressed deep concern over farmers not having access to their own money kept in bank accounts to invest the same in Kharif season.

Speaking at a meeting, Uttam said that the agriculture sector has been in a state of neglect under the rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao.

"Farmers had lost three consecutive crops due to official negligence and drought conditions. When they had a significantly better crop in last Rabi season, they failed to get remunerative prices for their produce.

Now, their money is locked up in various banks and they are being denied access to cash. This will badly affect the output of Kharif season and farmers will suffer irreparable damage," he said.

Uttam Kumar Reddy said that BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre was not listening to the grievances and appeals of Telangana farmers for availability of required cash in the commercial and rural banks.

TRS Government in the State has failed miserably in pressuring the Centre to provide cash and credit facility to farmers.

"KCR does not miss any occasion to shower praises on PM Modi, he had no courage to pull up the Centre for not providing required cash to farmers. He is living in his own imaginary world where farmers are a non-entity.

He is simply not concerned about the problems being faced by farmers. He failed to wake up from his slumber even after suicide by more than 3,000 farmers during the last three years," he said
