Role of Telanana JAC became redundant with the formation of Telangana after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. So T-JAC decided to reinvent itself in the changed political arena.
It is known that T-JAc played a powerful role in mobilising and galvanising people’s support to fight for the formation of Telangana and always keeping political leadership on its feet whenever they went into silent mode.
Now in the wake of increase in farmers committing suicides due to power problems in the new state, T-JAC decided to play proactive role in the crisis hour. In order to save power, T-JAC asked Government offices to switch off air conditioners and use solar power for hoardings. They also adviced farmers to use capacitors for their pump sets.
T-JAC which met on Sunday drew a road map for the Government and Opposition to make agriculture a profitable venture. It asked Government to take opposition into confidence in solving the problems of the farmers. Prof.Kodandaram,JAC chairman said TJAC can play key role in ensuring PPA govts with AP getting implemented. He said if this is done in right honest 40% of power problem would be solved. He
said Govt should install capacitors to 20 lakh pump sets and though it costs Rs 150 crore it will help small farmers. He adviced Govt to promotes gas power stations.
