KCR Clarifies About Buying Paddy In Rabi Season:- The Centre issued a clarification that they will not be able to purchase the paddy in the upcoming Rabi season. Despite efforts made by KCR and the government of Telangana, the talks failed and there are no major developments. KCR issued a clarification that the state government will not procure the paddy from the farmers in the rabi season after the Centre refused to purchase the par-boiled rice from the state. KCR said that the government of Telangana will not set up paddy purchase centers during this season which was a process followed by the government for the past few years. ముఖ్యమంత్రి శ్రీ కె. చంద్రశేఖర్ రావు అధ్యక్షతన ప్రగతి భవన్‌లో ఇవాళ రాష్ట్ర కేబినెట్ సమావేశం జరిగింది. అనంతరం ముఖ్యమంత్రి మీడియా సమావేశంలో మాట్లాడారు. pic.twitter.com/mr5XuO407M — Telangana CMO (@TelanganaCMO) November 29, 2021 KCR and his cabinet met yesterday to discuss about the developments and the decision was made after which KCR issued a statement. KCR asked the farmers to sow paddy only if they have purchase agreements with the rice millers or the seed companies. KCR cited the Centre's decision behind the move. "What can we do with the stocks that is sown during the rabi when the Centre is not ready to purchase? We will suffer huge losses and the government of Telangana already suffered a loss of Rs 10,000 crores for paddy and maize last year. The Centre failed to fulfil the commitment and more than 5 lakh tonnes of rice is lying in the rice mills from the last rabi season. This is the reason why we have stopped procuring paddy for the upcoming rabi season" told KCR. (Video Source: T News Telugu)
