The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Revanth Reddy said though farmers were entitled for compensation for crop loss suffered due to natural calamities under the Disaster Management Act, Central Government had always neglected farmers of Telangana.

The TPCC president demanded the State Government to pay compensation to farmers, who suffered losses due to unseasonal rains and insect attacks. To this effect, he wrote an open letter to Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and demanded that chilli farmers, who lost their crops, should be paid a compensation of Rs 50,000 per acre, while other farmers should be given a compensation of Rs 25,000 per acre.

The TPCC chief said that crops spread across 25 lakh acres of land worth nearly Rs 8,633 crore were lost in Telangana State due to the recent unseasonal rains and insect attacks. He said the team of Ministers, who inspected Warangal neither assessed the losses nor gave any concrete assurance to farmers. He said crops spread over 50,000 acres of land were damaged due to unseasonal rains in North Telangana.
