KTR demands state government to pay compensation to farmers

Hyderabad: BRS working president KT Rama Rao demanded the State government to pay compensation of Rs 25 lakh to 218 farmers who committed suicide due to withered crops under the current Congress rule.

Addressing the media KTR said, due to water crisis, citizens of Hyderabad and Secunderabad booked over 2.3 lakh water tankers including 1.3 lakh tankers from Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB), in March alone.

He demanded the State government to provide free water tanker service and withdraw bills issued for drinking water in Hyderabad and Secunderabad.

He also criticised the Chief Minister for stating that water tankers are being supplied to people within 12 hours. “The Chief Minister should be ashamed to make such claims and seeking an applause. Why are water tankers necessary in the first place?” he asked.

KTR reminded that during the BRS regime, the State government supplied 20,000 litres of drinking water to around 12 lakh families in Hyderabad and its surrounding areas free of cost.
