Co-op societies must mediate between farmers, govt: MLA
By being available to the farmers, this entity must strive hard for their development, the MLA said
WARANGAL: “Cooperative societies in the state had their origin from the Rajanna Sircilla district. These societies will face challenges that arise in the market and help consumers get monetary benefits,” stated Vemulawada MLA Chennamneni Ramesh Babu on Sunday.
He was participating in the oath-taking ceremony for the governing panel of the Rudrangi mandal agricultural market committee in Rajanna Sircilla district here on Sunday.
The MLA said the Telangana government was farmer-friendly. “Unlike any other state, the TS government introduced several welfare schemes for the farming sector. Both the Rudrangi and Chandurthi mandals turned fertile with water supplied from the Yellampalli reservoir. These mandals are yielding more profits to the farmers. In 2016, when the food grains yield in the united Chandurthi mandal was around 60,000 quintals, the yield in the mandal at present was around 3 lakh quintals.”
The governing panel of the market committees, he said, must be a mediator between the farmers and the government. By being available to the farmers, this entity must strive hard for their development.
Notably, the MPTCs and sarpanches of the Rudrangi mandal did not attend the programme. They alleged that they were not given advance information about the oath-taking ceremony.
The MPTCs alleged that “some leaders were taking one-sided decisions and not informing us” about such programmes. But the sarpanches attended the meeting after MLA Ramesh Babu made a phone call to them.
ZP chairperson N Aruna, Markfed former chairman Lokbabu Reddy, MPPs Swarupa and Lavanay, ZPTCs Nagam Kumar and Gatta Meenaiah were among those present.
