Govt to invest Rs 8,000 per acre

Hyderabad, June 17 ( The News )

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has asserted that his government has decided to provide Rs 8,000 per acre for investment in agriculture hitherto unknown in the history. Besides, farmers’ unions would be funded to the extent of Rs 500 crore to come to the rescue of farmers in the event of crops were not disposed.

He directed that each special officer must go to eery village in 31 districts and educate farmers about Rs 8,000 investment. They must have a clear perspective about the specific food requirements in Telangana. Government has already begun organising the unorganised farmers, Rao said.

CM also made clear that a day will come when farmers’ unions will decide the crop prices as their unions will be made all powerful. At a review meeting held in Pragati Bhavan here on June 15, he said that mandal-wise farmers will be brought to city to attend special seminars on farming.

Top officers must discuss with the district collectors about the ongoing survey of agriculture lands and farmers. Officers must take a lead role while suggesting the farmers the type of crop and food items, vegetables, grains etc. required. He called upon all concerned to ensure use of modern technology so that farmers get higher than the remunerative prices. Agriculture Minister Pocharam Srinnivas Reddy and top officers were present.
