Inspecting the process of paddy procurement centre at Ramavaram village in Kodakandla mandal  in the district on Friday, the Minister expressed displeasure over the non-completion of the paddy procurement despite the government’s orders to the officials concerned to buy each grain as the rainy season had set in. He also directed the District Collector K Nikhila to take action against the rice mill owners who were causing trouble to the farmers in purchasing grain soaked due to the recent rains.

Instructing the officials to complete the procurement of the paddy grain within two days, the Minister asked the farmers not to worry as the government was committed to buy every grain.

Remarking that the Telangana State is the number one State in the country by procuring 90 lakh metric tonnes of paddy in this Yasangi season which was with the construction of irrigation projects, the Minister alleged that though the State government was ready to collect the produce of the farmers and that the BJP government at the Centre was not cooperating with the State.

Dayakar Rao said that despite the financial difficulties of the State because of COVID pandemic, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao had been generous to release the Rythu Bima besides the purchase of paddy harvested by the farmers.
