Nalgonda: Farmers on Sunday performed ksheerabhishekam to the portrait of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao by pouring milk, for his decision to extend ex-gratia of Rs 3 lakhs to the families of the farmers, who lost lives in the agitation against the three new farm laws of the Centre in the Country. The farmers participated in ksheerabhishekam by raising slogans in favor of the Chief Minister.
Speaking on the occasion, TRS Haliya town president K Venkateshwarlu, who was also attended the programme, said that several farmers lost lives in the agitation waged against the new farm laws of the Centre. Heeding to the pressure from the farmers, the Centre has decided to repeal the new farm laws, but did not come forward to extend ex-gratia to the families of the farmers, who lost lives during the agitation. The Centre should also extend ex-gratia to the farmers, who were injured in the violent incidents that took place during their agitation, he added.
Referring to the decision of our Chief Minister to extend Rs 3 lakhs ex-gratia to the families of the farmers who lost lives in the agitation across the country, he said that the Chief Minister has shown his pro-farmer attitude once again. He pointed out that the agriculture policies of the TRS government have become a model to the entire Country in welfare of the farmers.
