Waive loans, declare all mandals as drought-hit: YSRCP

Waive loans, declare all mandals as drought-hit: YSRCP - Sakshi Post

In wake of the spate of suicides by farmers, YSR Congress has demanded the TDP Government to declare all mandals as drought- hit and waive agriculture loans in toto.

“The deficit rainfall during the sowing season was 54 % and the late monsoon has  scaled  down  the  figure  but  the  farmers  are  in  distress  and  drought conditions are prevailing in the State,” party spokesperson Vasireddy Padma told reporters on Friday. Four more farmers have committed suicide in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday and the  drought  conditions  prevailing  in  the  State  are  pushing  them  to  many hardships. The State announcing that the deficit rainfall is only 6 % does not reflect  the  true  picture  as  the  figure  is  much  higher  during  the  sowing season.

“Unless all mandals are declared as drought affected and loans are rescheduledagriculture will be in a bad shape in the State and we demand that the government waive  all  agriculture  loans  in  one go  to  save  farmers  from the  present distress” she said.
