Farmers unions representatives from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala held a meeting with MLC K Kavitha on Tuesday to discuss welfare and development schemes, particularly farmer-centric schemes such as Rythu Bandu and Rythu Bima, which are being implemented in Telangana. They wished that the schemes be implemented throughout the country, benefiting the entire farming community.
On the occasion, farmers’ leaders expressed their desire to work with BRS President and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, who has made farmers’ welfare a priority. They talked about the problems that farmers, toddy tappers, and other communities face in their respective states.
They expressed their support for the BRS government and backed the chief minister’s slogan ‘Abki baar, Kisan Sarkar,’ saying that it was the only government in the country to implement a scheme like free power.
Furthermore, the farmers’ leaders desired that the Telangana model development be replicated throughout the country. They stated that farmers from several states were waiting for Telangana’s farmer-friendly schemes to be implemented in their States.
They claimed that only a farmer-friendly government could bring about a complete change in the country.
Farmers leaders who attended the meeting included Ari Valagan, Soundarya Pandian, Murigeshan, and Balasubramaniam from Tamil Nadu; Chandran and Dhanushekhar from Kerala; and GS Ravinder and Raviprakash from Karnataka.
Kavitha slams Centre’s attempts to privatize SCCL
Kalvakuntla Kavitha slammed the BJP-led Centre on Sunday for its anti-people and anti-labourer policies.
She stated that the Centre attempted to privatise the Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) and that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao took steps to protect the company from privatisation while keeping the SCCL employees’ welfare in mind.
During a press conference in Bhupalpally on Sunday, she slammed the BJP for its anti-poor and pro-corporate policies, stating that the Centre had attempted to scuttle the development of Singareni by privatising it, while Chandrashekhar Rao had opposed the move.
Making a scathing attack on the Modi government’s efforts to privatise PSUs, she said it was shameful for the union government to design a program such as the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) to sell Public Sector Units (PSUs).
She claimed that privatising PSUs would have a negative impact on the lives of many people, particularly those from marginal communities.
