BJP MLA G. Kishan Reddy has strongly criticised the TRS Government for its alleged failure to deal with the drought situation in Telangana State.
Speaking to media persons after visiting the drought affected areas of Mahabubnagar district on Sunday, Kishan Reddy the drought has been playing havoc across the State. He said even marriages were being postponed due to drought situation. He said thousands of farmers and agricultural labourers were being forced to migrate to cities in search of livelihood. He said that the State Government has failed to arrange drinking water for villagers and cattle in affected villages.
Kishan Reddy claimed that the Central Government has so far released Rs. 800 crore towards drought relief. He said that the TRS Government was yet to spend the amount. He informed that the Telangana unit of BJP has prepared a report on drought situation and wanted to submit the same to Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao. However, he said that the Chief Minister was not giving appointment to the BJP leaders. He said KCR has sufficient time to receive defectors of opposition parties, but he has no time to discuss farmers’ issues. (INN)
