Coordination panels aimed at helping farmers get MSP: Tel CM

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

Chief Minister today dismissed the criticism of opposition and others that his tried to appoint workers of the ruling into the proposed farmers' coordination committees.

He said the coordination committees are only aimed at organising the farmers towards getting MSP for produce.

"They (committees) would be facilitators. They will impart knowledge. They have no powers. The committees are aimed at organising farmers for getting MSP for their produce" he said while speaking at an event here.

"Some see only politics. This is very strange. I appeal to them not to stall development," Rao said.

The opposition parties also alleged that the panels would weaken the democratically-elected representatives of the local bodies.
