Rythu Bandhu scheme benefiting only land lords: Shabbir

Vastavam web: Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir today charged Rythu Bandhu scheme of TRS Government was only benefiting the land lords and not the real farmers.Shabbir Ali said there was nothing new in the Chief Minister’s scheme. He said that the Rythu Bandhu scheme was grossly misused and it would deny poor farmers subsidies on fertilizers and seeds. “KCR took full credit for all good things that happened in Telangana including rainfall. But he blamed Congress party and earlier governments for all the ills and even his failure to implement the poll promises made to farmers, women, minorities and students,” he said.

Shabbir said during Telangana agitation KCR had accusd the Andhra people of looting the poor in Telagnana. But today, all works of irrigation and civil supplies have been awarded to contractors and workers from Andhra. He also alleged that KCR has forgotten the martyrs of Telangana and also the farmers who committed suicide. He said so far only 10,000 out of 2.6 lakh proposed units of double bed room houses have been constructed. Similarly, out of 1.07 lakh jobs, only 27,000 vacancies have been fulfilled.
