Andhra Pradesh Cheruku Rythu Sangham has expressed the view that the Rangarajan Committee recommendations were against the interest of sugarcane farmers.

Sangham state president Y. Kesava Rao said the recommendations give an impression that they were approval of demands of managements of sugar factories.

The managements benefit more than sugarcane farmers.

The Central Government unilaterally scrapped the Bhargava Committee formula which has been a shield to the farmers.

The Rangarajan Committee could not show an alternative to the Bhargava Committee formula, he pointed out.
