Hyderabad: BJP MP and the party’s national vice president Bandaru Dattatreya accused Telangana government of being ‘short-sighted and unprepared’ which led to water and power shortage due to which several farmers have committed suicide in the newly formed state.
“In the new state of Telangana, so far about 250 farmers committed suicide due to water and power shortage. Nobody expected this from the new state of Telangana. This situation arose only due to the short sightedness and unpreparedness of the Telangana government,” Dattatreya said here. He demanded that Telangana state government provide Rs 5 lakh to each of bereaved farmers’ families and take appropriate steps to help farmers with their loans, purchase of crops and granting fresh loans.
