CPI(M) State secretary P. Madhu has urged Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to fulfil his promise to supply free power to the agriculture sector for nine hours. In a letter to the Chief Minister, Mr. Madhu stated it was not difficult to fulfil the promise as the State was power-surplus. Besides, it was mentioned in the TDP’s 2014 manifesto. Mr. Madhu also expressed concern over the high tariff imposed on jaggery farmers by considering their activity as an industry.
