Jupally assures aid for crop loss

Must read

Minister Jupally Krishna Rao has appealed to the farmers not to give in to despair due to unseasonal rains playing havoc with their crops and assured them that the government would take steps to pay them compensation for the crop loss.
Addressing media at the Congress office here on Thursday, he said that Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy has ordered officials to conduct a survey on the crop loss and decided to pay a compensation of Rs 10,000 per acre to the farmers who sustained crop loss.  Further, he said that the government is keen to revive the crop insurance scheme to benefit the farmers.
There was no single instance of the previous BRS regime paying compensation to the farmers during its regime when farmers sustained crop losses due to natural calamities. It did not come to the rescue of the farmers. It did not even requisition reports on the crop loss, he lamented.
Under Rythu Bharosa, the State government has transferred Rs 4295 crore to farmers who owned up to 3.5 acres of land under Rythu Bharosa scheme towards input subsidy. Out of the total 69.86-lakh farmers, the cash was transferred among 58.66 lakh. The rest of the farmers would also receive the input subsidy into their bank accounts in a week, he elaborated.
On one hand the state government has been implementing series of measures for the good of the farmers and on the other, it implemented some of the six guarantees in the short period of three months, he said.
He said that the BRS leaders have been finding fault with the Congress regime with everything the government does to make the government unpopular.
The BRS would not win at least one seat in LS elections and predicted that the party would soon become empty if large scale migration of leaders from the BRS to Congress was any indication.
Further, he said that the government was successfully in filling 30,000 jobs within a short period and paying salaries to the government employees on the first of every month.
By the time the Congress received reins of the state administration from the BRS, the financial position of the state was miserable, he said accusing the previous BRS regime of pushing the rich state into Rs 8 lakh crore debts.
Though the financial condition of the state was not good, the Congress government has been implementing the electoral promises and delivering good administration to the people, he claimed.
Earlier, the minister visited rain damaged fields in Bhikkanuru, Domakonda, Jangampalli, Antampalli and Lingupalli villages and assured the farmers there that the government would come to their rescue. The government is ready to pay a compensation of Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000 an acre.
He told them that the government would come to the rescue of all farmers and asked them not to be wary.
Advisor to the government Shabbir Ali and other Congress leaders accompanied Jupally on his tour.
