FARMER SUICIDE

New Delhi: Telangana Chief Minister and Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) president K. Chandrasheka Rao lashed out Narendra Modi-led Centre over farmers’ suicide saying the latter are showing us Cheetahs instead.

On Monday, the BRS leader held a public meeting in Maharashtra’s Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar where he said, “Hundreds of farmers are committing suicide in the country every day but the PM, and state leaders are not bothered. They are bringing and showing us Cheetahs from Africa, Namibia.”

The Telangana CM called for a transformation in the agriculture sector of Maharashtra that should emulate the agrarian model existing in KCR’s state.

“The farmer should lead the movement of transformation for realising the all-round development of a nation which is lagging behind, like that of China and South Korea in spite of the fact that the local ryots are capable of building a nation of development,” said the Chief Minister.

The BRS held the public meeting in Aurangabad that received an overwhelming response with the crowd filled with the farmers. He was accompanied by by MPs K Keshava Rao, Santhosh Kumar, Former minister Kadiyam Srihari, Former Chief secretary Somesh Kumar and others.

Farmers’ Protest on Maharashtra’s Buldhana 

Earlier on Saturday, a protest broke out in Maharashtra’s Buldhana at Sangrampur tehsil office premises against the government’s inaction crop spoilage due to the unseasonal rains.

Farmers’ Organization held the protest demanding the government to open up a gram procurement centre to protect their crops in future. The union further pressed for the need of onion subsidy for summer. Maharashtra produces the most onion in the nation.

As reported by the media, the unseasonal rains in the state have caused considerable damage to the crops.
