Hyderabad: Agriculture Minister S Niranjan Reddy challenged the BJP State president Bandi Sanjay and Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy to exert pressure on the Central Government to procure entire paddy produced in the State and prove their commitment for farmers welfare in Telangana.
If the BJP leaders succeed and make the Central Government to make an announcement by 5 pm today, I will resign as Minister. On the contrary, if they fail both Bandi Sanjay and Kishan Reddy should resign,” challenged Niranjan Reddy here on Thursday.
Addressing media persons at his camp office, the Agriculture Minister charged that BJP was stopping down to cheap politics and found fault with Bandi Sanjay’s Deeksha.
The Central Government was adopting double standards in terms farmers welfare and the BJP government practices were affecting the farmers lives, he said.
Four months prior to the commencement of Vanakalam season, the State Government has been appealing to the Central Government to procure the stocks, the Agriculture Minister said.
“Even after Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao personally approached the Central government, there is no announcement in this regard,” said Niranjan Reddy.
In view of the Huzarabad by-poll, the BJP was indulging in cheap politics, he said adding “Irrespective of the saffron party’s gimmicks, it is set to lose the Huzarabad elections,”.
