Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has made a big announcement during the campaigning for Telangana assembly elections. "Farmers in Telangana are in deep debt. They are not getting any help from the government. Addressing the public and especially the farmers of the state, Priyanka Gandhi said that if the Congress forms the government in Telangana by winning the assembly elections, then the farmers will get the guarantee of MSP for crops. If the Congress forms its government in Telangana, the MSP to farmers will be fixed at Rs 2,500 per quintal for paddy, Rs 4,400 for soybean, Rs 2,200 for maize, Rs 4,000 for sugarcane, Rs 6,700 for arhar and Rs 6,500 per quintal for cotton.

Gifts to farmers and labourers

He also said that good days for farmers will begin once the Congress comes to power in Telangana. Along with this, the Congress General Secretary has made many other big announcements, under which women will be given the facility of gas cylinders and free bus travel for Rs 500 along with Rs 25,000 per month, while farmers will be provided financial assistance of Rs 15,000 annually. At the same time, this amount has been fixed at Rs 12 thousand annually for agricultural laborers. Apart from this, 200 units of free electricity, free land for construction of houses and Rs 5 lakh as well as Rs 4 thousand as monthly pension to the elderly have been announced.

The law for the guarantee of MSP

As everyone knows, farmers have been demanding a guarantee law for MSP for a long time. In such a situation, this bet of the Congress can prove to be a big decision in the direction of its victory in the assembly elections. Polling for 119 Assembly seats in Telangana will be held on November 30 and the results will be declared on December 3. Whether the promises made to the farmers will be fulfilled or not is a different matter, but it is very important for the farmer to convert these announcements into reality. India is an agricultural country.
