VHR wants MSP to be hiked to ₹6,000 per quintal
Senior Congress leader and former Rajya Sabha MP V. Hanumantha Rao staged a ‘rasta roko’ on Khammam-Suryapet highway at Gopalraopet on Monday in protest against the alleged callous indifference of the State and Central governments towards the distraught cotton growers in the State.
Mr. Rao, accompanied by some local Congress cadre, visited the Cotton Corporation of India (CCI) procurement centre at a ginning mill in Kusumanchi mandal earlier in the day.
He along with some Congress activists, later squatted on the middle of the highway protesting against alleged denial of remunerative price to cotton farmers.
Vehicular movement on the busy road was disrupted for more than 10 minutes due to the sit-in protest.
He called off the stir following the intervention of the officials concerned.
Speaking to newsmen at Gopalraopet, Mr. Rao slammed the State Government accusing it of leaving the distressed farmers in dire straits without addressing the crisis gripping the cotton growers.
He demanded that the minimum support price for cotton be increased to at least ₹6,000 per quintal and remedial measures be initiated to bail out the farmers from the present crisis.
On the woes of Gulf migrants, he alleged that the TRS Government had failed to render concrete help to the thousands of migrant workers from Telangana those languishing in despair in various Gulf countries.
Appreciating the reported move of the Andhra Pradesh Government to extend financial assistance to the Gulf returnees, he said the Telangana Government should also come up with similar plan to provide succour to the impoverished families of the Gulf migrants in the State.Courtesy: http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/telangana/cong-holds-rasta-roko-for-remunerative-price/article20404649.ece
