Participating in the Rythu Bharosa Yatra organized by the TPCC in Toopran mandal of Medak district on Tuesday along with TPCC working president Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, former Deputy Chief Minister Damodara Rajanarasimha, Uttam Kumar Reddy lashed out at the TRS government saying that farmers’ were committing suicides more in Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s home district Medak. He demanded that the Telangana government extend Rs 6 lakh ex gratia to all the bereaved families of farmers, who had committed suicides. He alleged that the Chief Minister had failed to instill confidence among the farmers. The farmers’ suicides will come to an end only when the State government implemented loan waiver at one go.
