BRS to farmers: Do you want 3 crops or 3 hours of power

Must read

Hyderabad: BRS leaders held meetings with farmers at Rythu Vedikas across the state protesting against the Congress’ stance on free electricity supply to farmers. They reminded people about the electricity problems during the Congress regime in erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh because of which farmers suffered. They are quoting the statement of Revanth Reddy that three hours of electricity supply is enough for agriculture. Protesting against the attitude of the Congress which made inappropriate comments on free electricity supply to farmers, Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao participated as the chief guest at meetings held with farmers in Palakurti constituency’s Rythu Vedikas. The Minister explained the conditions that existed earlier to farmers and how public representatives were afraid to come to villages in summer. Telangana Legislative Council Chairman Gutta Sukhender Reddy was the chief guest at a farmers’ meeting held at Angadipet Rythuvedika in Nalgonda district.

He said that farmers should raise three crops a year using irrigation water from the Krishna and Godavari basins and that people should think whether they want the BRS which gives free 24-hour electricity to raise three crops or the Congress which gives only three hours of electricity.

Minister Vemula Prashant Reddy attended the protest meeting held at Velpur Rythu Vedika and said, “KCR did not paint walls like Revanth. Revanth is the man who blackmailed RTI applicants. If such people become the Chief Minister, it will be hell. The CM is insisting on buying electricity from the Chhattisgarh government although many private companies came. There were no lines to bring electricity from Chhattisgarh. In the last 60 years the Congress did not even provide power lines. Telangana, which had a capacity of 4,500 MW, set up new plants to generate 18,000 MW.”

The BRS is organising meetings of farmers at Rythu Vedikas in all constituencies protesting against the Congress’ stance on free electricity supply.
