BRS Calls for State-wide Debate on Free Power to Farmers

KT Rama Rao, the Working President of BRS, has urged for a state-wide debate on the issue of round-the-clock free power to farmers versus the three-hour supply proposed by the PCC president.

Rao emphasized the need to expose what he called the "sinister designs" of the Congress party, accusing them of trying to deprive the farm sector of free power 

As part of this initiative, meetings will be held at Rythu Vedikas (farmer's platforms) across the state for ten days starting from July 17, with the aim of reaching out to every farmer. 

MLAs from the respective constituencies will ensure the success of these meetings, which are expected to have the participation of at least thousands of farmers 

Farmers attending the Rythu Vedikas will adopt resolutions condemning the Congress party's alleged attempts to deprive them of the benefits of free power provided by the BRS government. 

The farmers will also demand an apology from Congress leaders for their comments suggesting that a three-hour power supply is sufficient for 95% of farmers in the state. 

KT Rama Rao stressed the importance of sensitizing farmers about the implications of a limited power supply and the need to support the BRS government's initiative. 

The BRS government remains committed to supporting the agricultural sector and working towards the welfare of the state's 70 lakh farmers. 

KT Rama Rao criticized the PCC president, Revanth Reddy, by comparing him to former CM N Chandrababu Naidu, alleging that both pursued anti-farmer policies. 

KTR suggested that the Congress party in the state has essentially become the "Telugu Desam Congress" or "Chandrababu Congress," implying that their policies align closely with those of Naidu's party.
