Call to hit back at separatist forces with vigour


Anantapur: Minister for Ag riculture N. Raghuveera Reddy observed that the State government has risen to the occasion by acting swiftly to the woes of the victims of micro-financiers' harassment by bringing out an ordinance to check companies which are charging exorbitant rates of interest.

Addressing the 54th AP State Formation Day celebrations at the police parade grounds here on Monday, he said that the government intends to come to the rescue of the poor by offering loans through IKP under the Pavala Vaddi Scheme.

Bumper crop

KURNOOL: Minister for Housing Shilpa Mohan Reddy hoped for a bumper crop this year in Kurnool district due to favourable monsoon conditions coupled with proper supply of inputs.

Addressing the AP Formation Day function, he promised remunerative prices for all important crops.

The Minister said all measures were taken to protect borrowers from microfinance institutions by forming task force panels to monitor implementation of the ordinance. He wanted the borrowers to make use of the bank loans to clear MFI loans.

The Minister paid glowing tributes to Potti Sriramulu.

Unified State favoured
