Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao has been demanding that the Centre should buy the entire Yasangi crop produced in the state on the lines of procurement in Punjab and Haryana. Similarly Telangana finance minister T Harish Ra had also urged the central government to come with one nation one procurement policy.

Rao also said that the Centre is supposed to help the states and ensure their stocks are replenished with various crops such as rice and pulses. He also attacked the Modi government for ignoring farmers’ issues. “There must be one nation one procurement policy so that we could buy rice at the same price. Farmers provide us with a lot of crops which are beneficial for us, what has the BJP given to the farmers?” asked Rao.
