Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan has questioned why the state government is maintaining confidentiality in grain procurement details. He asked why these details were removed from the government website.
To this extent, Pawan released a statement accusing the government of failing to pay for the food grains to farmers. He warned that money should be paid for every nut by the end of this month. Otherwise, he said his party will fight for the farmers.
PK said the government should pay more than Rs 3,000 crore to farmers. He objected that there were arrears of up to Rs 1,800 crore in both the Godavari districts alone for grain purchased during the rabi season. He said the money would be used to invest in the crop this season.
Pawan Kalyan lamented it was unfortunate that the farmers were divided along party lines in this matter. He was outraged that the crop was being bought from those who supported the ruling party. He criticized the YSRCP for showing politics in the crop and the food grains.
