Hyderabad, Jan.12 (Hydnow): Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has registered a strong protest against the Central Government‘s decision to increase the price of fertilisers, which will put agriculture sector into a crisis and break the backbone of farming in the country.
K. Chandrasekhar Rao will write a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi registering his protest against the increase of fertilisers’ prices, a release from the CMO said on Wednesday.
The CM expressed his anger that the Central government which made tall promises that it would increase the farmers income double fold by 2022, is now increased the prices of fertilisers at an all time high to break the farming community’s back.
It is highly reprehensible that the Central government which promised to double the income of farmers took a U turn and increased the agriculture expenses. This shows that the BJP government is totally against the farmers and it is proved right beyond any doubt.
The CM said there is deep conspiracy behind the central government policies and actions to make the lives of farmers miserable. Decisions like to install motor meters to collect the power
charges, not linking NRGE with the farm sector, increasing the fertilizers prices to all time high, not purchasing the Paddy cultivated by the farmers, all these draconian decisions of the BJP government at the Centre have made farmers life difficult to survive. One should oppose the actions that would make farmers becoming a labourer in his own land.
The Chief Minister gave a clarion call to people in the state and people across the country to root out BJP government which is weakening the rural economy, hereditary trades, playing havoc with the farm sector only hand over agriculture sector to the Corporates.
KCR has expressed anguish that the BJP government at the Centre had removed subsidies on the fertilisers, which were in vogue for several decades, and the situation came to such a pass that the farmers had no option but to take up their ploughs and revolt against the Central government.
He urged the people to confront the BJP on the matter at every opportunity. He made it clear that if the central government fails to withdraw the increased prices of fertilisers, there will be state wide and countrywide agitations against the Central government.
He also urged the farming community in the state to expose the BJP’s conspiracy and join the struggle to make the Centre withdraw the fertilizer price hike. (Hydnow)
