Chief Minister replies on drought situation in the State

The Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy stated in the Assembly that nearly Rs.4,000 crore more would be allocated to the National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme in the State to save the farm labourers from drought. In his reply to the discussion on drought in the Assembly, he said that villages which were facing drinking water with tankers, cattle centers would be established and a contingency plan was prepared for rabi season.

He informed that only 32 suicides took place in the last couple of months and out of them only 25 were due to drought. He wanted the Opposition parties not to press the panic button and wanted them to instill confidence among the farmers. The Chief Minister said that the NREGP was of immense help to the farm laborers and nearly 50 lakh were being benefited by it.

The Chief Minister said that the Government would establish monitoring committees in the districts in the mandals to check prices. The MSP for red gram has been increased to Rs.3,500 to encourage the farmers to take up cultivation of red gram in at least 2.5 lakh acres. He admitted that except Srikakulam and Vizianagaram all the districts were deprived of reains and the shortfall was nearly fifty percent till date. He added that the government did every thing to handle drought situation and nothing is left.
