Warangal: Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao on Friday said that the Union government had bowed down to the pressure mounted by the TRS party chief and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and announced the scrapping of the three farm laws.
The Minister reminded that the Chief Minister had stood by the farmers, who had fought tirelessly against the new farm laws, brought by the Centre. Addressing a press meet along with MPs Banda Prakash, Pasunri Dayakar, MLAs Vinay Bhaskar, Challa Dharma Reddy, Mayor Gundu Sudharani, the Minister congratulated the farmers who waged a battle against the ‘black laws’. The Minister expressed his condolences to the families of farmers who lost their lives in the struggle.
Speaking on the occasion, the Minister reminded that TRS MPs had opposed the ‘black laws’ introduced by the Centre in Parliament following the directions of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao. He suggested BJP and Congress leaders to mount pressure on the Centre to purchase paddy from Telangana.
Meanwhile, MLC Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, in a statement, termed the Centre’s decision as a victory of farmers. “Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao played a key role in repealing farm laws,” Dr Rajeshwar Reddy said and expressed his condolences to the kin of the bereaved families, who participated in the anti-farm agitations and lost their lives. He demanded the Centre to procure paddy harvested in Telangana and allow the State to cultivate paddy in the ensuing Yasangi season.
