Fulfil free power promise to farmers

(01 Apr 2018)

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.
