Why seven months to give power to farmers? Jeevan Reddy

Questioning the TRS government, which was giving power connections within 24 hours to the industries, Congress senior leader and Jagtial MLA T Jeevan Reddy asked as to why it needed seven months to give power connections to the farmers. He also demanded that the State government provide power connections to farmers before December last week.       

           

Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Wednesday, Jeevan Reddy said the government has to give power connections immediately to see that the farmers have to get one crop. It was nothing but sprinkling water on hopes the farmers by saying that the connections will be given within seven months, Jeevan Reddy said. He said the Congress party, after coming to power in 2004, had regularised bore connections immediately and said the farmers in Telangana do cultivation depending upon wells. (NSS)
