Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) on Tuesday excoriated the centre for allegedly denying to procure entire Kharif (summer or monsoon crop) paddy produced in Telangana and proclaimed that the party would dissent against it in all Assembly Constituencies on November 12.

TRS leader Krishank told ANI, “TRS has not supported farm bills and protested against it in Telangana. Now the Government of India has come up with a new paddy procurement policy and strictly says that no parboiled rice will be purchased from Telangana. At the same time, it is restricting the procurement of paddy, and has also asked the state to discourage paddy production and encourage other crops.”

“We will be holding a protest on Friday. They cannot continue to confuse farmers and do injustice to them and has to procure every grain in Telangana,” the TRS leader said. In addition to this, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Monday informed that the TRS would conduct dharnas(strikes) in all Assembly Constituencies, with farmers demanding the Central government to procure entire Kharif (summer or monsoon crop) paddy produced in Telangana.
