Hyderabad: Reacting on the Centre budget of doling out Rs 6000 sops to farmers in the country, TRS Working President and Former Minister K T Rama Rao today said that it was the replication of what Telangana State is implementing. The Centre proposes Kisan Samman Nidhi to give Rs 6000 to farmers below 5 acres through direct transfer into their accounts. This is scheme is similar to our Rythu Bandhu that attracted sight of entire world he said. In last Kharif the TRS Government implemented the scheme and the centre has changed its name with the same spirit.
The farmers in the country are to get benefit from the brainchild of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. The TRS Government offers Rs 5000 per acre for two crops a year and the Centre proposed to give Rs 6000 which is less he said.
They sai imitation is the best form of flattery. Glad that the farmers of India are going to be helped by Rythu Bandhu which is the brainchild of KCR he said. The name may have been changed by NDA Government, in spirit it remains trimmed of Rythu Bandhu. Jai Kisan KT Rama Rao said.
