Hyderabad: The main opposition YSR Congress Party in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday demanded that the TDP government convene an all-party meeting to discuss the steps to be taken to mitigate the drought situation in the state and sought a one-time settlement towards loan waiver of the farmers.

"When severe drought conditions are prevalent in the state, the TDP government's indifference is objectionable and we demand that it convene an all-party meeting to discuss the steps to be taken to mitigate the situation," party MLA G Srinkant Reddy told reporters.
