Congress leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka says that the state budget introduced by finance minister Etela Rajender is not beneficial to common people. Budget claims that major funds are allocated to agriculture and Rs 1 lakh loan waiver was implemented for farmers.
Vikramarka said that loan waiver to farmers was not implemented properly during the last three years. Budget says 30,000 tanks were repaired in Mission Bhagiradha scheme by spending Rs 25,000 cr. But there is no increase in cultivable lands area or in ayacut area in Telangana, he said.
Agriculture yields have been reduced in three years. Mirch, maize, cotton and tuwar dal are not getting support price in market yards. Farmers are not happy with the budget, Vikramarka said in the Assembly.
