Nizamabad: Nizamabad MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha called upon around 1,000 farmers to file nominations from the Varanasi and Amethi Lok Sabha constituencies, from where Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi are expected to contest, to draw the attention of the country to the poor remunerative prices for agriculture produce.
She was addressing turmeric and red jowar farmers in the north TS district, who were planning to file a large number of nomination papers in the Nizamabad LS constituency. She alleged that Congress and BJP leaders are trying to provoke farmers on the issue of prices.
Speaking at the public meeting in Nizamabad on Tuesday, Ms Kavitha alleged that the Congress and BJP leaders were trying to provoke the farmers on the issue of prices. “A few political leaders, under the pretext of farmers’ benefits, are attempting to disturb the peace,” she said.
Ms Kavitha said, “TRS should stand for Telangana Rythu Samiti and not Telangana Rashtra Samiti as we are more concerned about the farmers. We plan on setting up food processing units to tackle the price issues.”
Many people and TRS activists from Nizamabad Urban, Nizamabad Rural, Bodhan, Armoor, Balkonda, Korutla, and Jagitial Assembly constituencies attended the meeting in large numbers. TSRTC and private vehicles were arranged to carry them to the meeting venue. The people reacted enthusiastically to the emotional speeches by the Chief Minister Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao and MP Ms Kavitha. A few TRS fans even danced to the tunes of the cultural troupes at the meeting venue.
