Telangana Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Tribal Welfare Minister Satyavathi Rathod today held a review meeting at Mulugu district to review the preparations for the setting up of government procurement centres for the purchase of agricultural produce.
During the meeting, the two ministers directed the concerned local officials to take steps to set up purchase centres through which the produce of the farmers of the region would be bought, and to subsequently ensure that the crops were purchased only at the relevant MSPs.
They added, "The TRS government has always been committed to working towards the welfare of the farmers of the state. We will purchase the crops grown by them at the relevant MSPs through procurement centres that are being set up across Telangana. Officials have been instructed to carry out the procurement process in keeping with the necessary Covid-19 guidelines."
"Apart from setting up procurement centres, our government has introduced many programs that have benefited the state's farmers greatly. The Rythu Vedikas for instance are helping the farmers get advice on many subjects, including crop growing techniques, agricultural innovations, and the best farming practices. All levels of the state's administration work together to ensure the proper implementation of our rural welfare schemes. The Rythu Bandhu and Rythu Bhima programs and 24-hour free electricity and water supply are other great schemes being appreciated by not only the beneficiaries but also the Centre and the other states in the country. In addition to all this, the KCR government has been waiving farm loans. It also gives Rs 10,000 per acre to each farmer in two spells. Further, we are currently working on improving amenities in rural pockets of the state to help the agrarian community," Rao and Rathod claimed.
Mulugu was recently in the news after the local police unearthed a massive pile of ammunition and explosives from a field in the district's Mansingh Thanda area, on April 3. The materials were recovered from a bucket buried 1.5 meters deep in the ground.
Police reports stated that other evidence recovered from the bucket suggested that the ammunition had been planted in the field by the Telangana unit of the banned extreme Left outfit, the CPI-Maoist.
