Telangana Telugu Desam Party president L. Ramana on Monday alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and his son and minister K Tarakarama Rao were enacting a new drama in the name of ‘Grama Jyothi’.
Speaking to media persons here, Ramana said that the new scheme, launched by KCR in Warangal district, was aimed at misleading the farmers. He alleged that KCR was not serious about the welfare of farmers, he said that the Telangana Government has even neglected the families of those who committed suicide. He said that the TDP Government of Andhra Pradesh has raised the ex-gratia amount to Rs. 5 lakh for the families of farmers who committed suicide.
Ramana asked KCR to take practical steps for the farmers’ welfare instead of trying to get publicity through programmes like ‘Grama Jyothi’. (INN)
