Pawan Kalyan: Be Fair With Two States In Chilli Prices
Hyderabad: Jana Sena Chief Pawan kalyan flayed Central Government for its unfair attitude between two states in Chilli farmers’ issue.
Centre announced that it would buy chillies at cost of Rs 5000 per quintal under Market Intervention scheme, upto May 31st. Added to this, Union Minister Venkiah Naidu stated that a maximum of 88,300 metric tons can be procured under MIS scheme from AP, where as in Telangana he restricted the quantity to 33,700 metric tons.
Pawan lashed out on this bias between the two states and in a press release stated that centre should procure the same quantity as it did for AP .
He further added that ₹ 5000 per quintal as announced by the Centre will not offset the falling prices and the support price should be further increased by Centre.
In a media statement, Pawan said that farmers are protesting on roads in two states which shows the situation of farmers who were neglected by the governments is very bad. It is not good for the country if the farmers are made to suffer, Pawan said.
