Need to curb farmer deaths: Minister
By Thehindu 06-Aug-2019
At a review meeting for the first time after becoming the district in-charge Minister, Mr. Ramachandra Reddy asked officials to ensure the loans of the farmers are rescheduled and based on information from the local MLAs, the bankers, Agriculture Department officials and others must ensure that interest burden does not fall on them. This should be checked every three months, he added. He asked officials to get in touch with bankers regarding loans and have a coordination on all these aspects.
Expressing concern over the Agriculture Department officials’ lack of initiative to come to the rescue of farmers, he said that at many places they do not interact with farmers either on crop loans, seeds to be obtained or irrigation methods.
