Mangalagiri (Andhra Pradesh) [India], Mar 29 (ANI): YSRCP leader YS Sharmila on Friday promised people to bring back 'Rajanna Rajyam, a reference to the rule of her late father YSR, credited with introducing several path-breaking welfare schemes for poor and other weaker sections of the society.
Sharmila interacted with to farmers while campaigning, where turmeric farmers complained that they were not getting minimum support price (MSP) for their produce because of which they were unable to clear their bank loans.
Addressing the turmeric farmers, Sharmila said: “During Rajanna Rajyam turmeric farmers were given minimum support price of Rs 16,000 to Rs 17,000 as YSRCP was always concerned about farmer’s welfare.”
“Agriculture might become extinct under N Chandrababu Naidu’s regime. He is never concerned about farmers' welfare and doesn’t deserve to be a people leader," she said.
"Give a chance to my brother Jagan Mohan Reddy, as he has closely seen the problems of farmers during his padayatra. He will pay crop insurance premium, prize stabilization fund and also will stand in support of farmers in all times,” she said.
Land pooling farmer from Undavalli said that they were forced to sell their lands on the river bed at lower rates.
Speaking to them, YS Sharmila said: “I can promise you that my brother Jagan Mohan Reddy will do justice for Andhra Pradesh as he feels people are more important. Rajanna Rajyam is not so far. Being Rajanna’s daughter I will not let farmers suffer. (ANI)
