Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu will visit Miryalaguda in Nalgonda district on May 13 to enquire about the farmers’ problems.
As part of his tour, he will visit Miryalaguda market yard to learn about the problems of paddy farmers. The farmers were in penury as market transactions were stopped due to stains in rice. As the district administration declined to buy the rice from farmers, nearly five lakh tons of rice was dumped in the farmers’ houses.
The TDP will also discuss support price for the farmers. The TDP leader also plans to visit the paddy fields hit by shortage of water. Naidu will also focus on irregularities in distribution of fertilizers and seeds, erratic power supply, black marketing of fertilizers and anti-farmer policies of the government, a press note stated.
