Telangana IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao today announced that the farmers in the state would get Rythu Bandhu support from June 15.
At a program organised at Rajana Siricilla district to commemorate the state's formation day, Rao unfurled the tricolour and conveyed his greetings to the people.
Speaking on the occasion, he claimed that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had "transformed" the drylands in the district into irrigated ones by ensuring the completion of several irrigation projects. He also praised KCR for launching many well-received welfare schemes for the people of the state, specifically the agrarian community.
"With the financial support provided by the KCR government, the farmers of Telangana have been able to push up agricultural production across the state. Each farmer is now able to harvest about 30 to 40 quintals of paddy. The credit for this goes to the vision of our CM. In order to launch a green revolution in our state, the CM has launched many programs. The Upper Maneru dam, for instance, is full of water today, even at the peak of summer, due to these efforts," the minister claimed.
KTR then instructed the officials concerned to provide Rythu Bandhu assistance to the farmers of the state from June 15, and assured the farmers that the government would procure all their produce once it was harvested.
(The program provides Rs 5,000 an acre twice a year to eligible farmers, and as many as 61 lakh farmers benefit from it.)
However, he also advised the district officials to focus on settling any land disputes before the commencement of the Rythu Bandhu program. Addressing the Collectors, he asked them to resolve local and forest land issues immediately.
While there, the minister also inspected the ongoing construction works for a market yard and a battalion area.
