As Telangana is facing acute power shortage, the suicides of farmers in the state continue to grow and is drawing national attention. While opposition parties in Telangana making huge cry over State government for turning blind eye to the critical issue, ruling TRS indulges in blame game and maintains that opposition is only keen on defaming the first government of the state.
Till now Telangana CM KCR remained tight lipped on the issue and as media taking up farmers deaths seriously, KCR has finally broken his silence. However he surprised one and all saying that about “1,500 people have died in Andhra” and what’s more shocking is he doesn’t have any appropriate information on farmers suicides but tried blaming media saying media is exaggerating the farmers deaths in region.
He said number of farmers suicides is not as “high” as “portrayed in the media”. The big ridicule doing rounds in political circles is that whether KCR has more “knowledge” on Andhra than Telangana?
