HYDERABAD: All India Kisan Congress state president Anvesh Reddy along with a group of farmers was taken into custody on Tuesday after they staged protest at agriculture commissioner’s office in Hyderabad asking that the TRS government to pass a resolution against the three newly-enacted farm laws in Telangana assembly.
Anvesh Reddy demanded that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao-led TRS government should continue to procure the agriculture produce from the farmers by offering them the minimum support price wherever required.
For this purpose, the state government should revive the procurement centres in all the villages, he said.
Anvesh along with farmers said the government should pay compensation due to the farmers as part of crop insurance scheme and also bear the burden of interest on crop loans as it has failed to waive off these loans of up to Rs one lakh.
“The government should waive off the crop loans at one go and not in instalments. Even the land survey should be re-launched immediately and ensure that the eligible poor farmers are given pattas,” he demanded.
