Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today made his government's stand clear on the controversial issue of the tenant farmers of the state.
He said that the government would not consider the problems being faced by the tenant farmers, and that the interests of the actual farmers were of paramount importance to it.
He added that the tenancy agreement was a private affair, made between the tenant farmers and the owners of the agricultural land.
KCR said that the actual farmers of the lands had been protecting their lands for ages, and would not sell the lands whatever the situation be. Middlemen and brokers therefore tried to encroach upon such lands by turning into tenant famers, the CM claimed, and said that the actual farmers would incur losses if the government started to care for the tenant farmers.
He however hastened to state that his government would come to the rescue of the tenant farmers if they really sustained genuine losses.
