TRS faulted

Agriculture being a State Subject, he wanted to know what Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had done for the farmers since he did not give a single paisa bonus or input subsidy and loan waiver was not done to fullest extent. Further, he could not avert farmers suicides, among others. Farmers have been totally duped in the last four years, he claimed.
