Demanding that the TDP government should immediately take steps towards arranging for finances to the farmers as the khariff season is on hand, YSR Congress has said the committee set up for State capital seems to be redundant and appears to be a ruling party outfit.
“We demand that the Government should take immediate steps to enable all farmers to get agriculture loans with the onset of monsoon and also clear dues of DWACRA groups and weavers” party Deputy Floor leader Jyothula Nehru told reporters here on Monday.
The Government has been looking for ways to escape the loan waiver on some pretext or the other and is trying hard to manipulate the Kotaiah Committee Report which was constituted to study the logistics of waiving loans.
“In the first place there is no need to set up a committee as waiver of all agricultural loans was the prime poll promise of TDP and it was the first file Chandrababu Naidu has signed. It is only to bid time and push the issue of waiving loans into cold storage.
We will not allow this and demand that the state government should immediately make arrangements for the farmers to get loans for agricultural operations,” he said.
On the building of state capital a committee was constituted by the government which sans public involvement. It appears to be a TDP committee. Instead all stakeholders should be partners in the building of the new state capital, including the main opposition party.
Setting up a committee ahead of the norms mentioned in State Reorganisation Bill makes this committee redundant, he said, adding that all sections of people should be involved in the building of the new state capital.
