The TRS delegation said, “Therefore, there is an urgent need to declare to the farmers whether FCI will procure the rice from Telangana in Rabi 2021-22 season and to what extent.”
The memorandum read, “The pro-farmer initiatives of the TRS government led to noteworthy progress in gross paddy sown area of over 109 per cent in Kharif and over 116 per cent in Rabi during the period from 2018-19 to 2020-21. There has also been an enormous increase in productivity of paddy.”
The TRS delegation urged Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan to impress upon the Union government to direct the Food Corporation of India (FCI) to procure paddy from Telangana State
It is to be noted, the paddy procurement issue has now become a major matter in Telangana. The ruling TRS Government and the opposition, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are protesting against each other regarding the same.
