Andhra Pradesh Civil Supplies Minister Kodali Nani, the other day speaking at a Press conference announced his party banning of channels like ABN, Andhrajyothy, TV5, Eenadu, ETV for trying to portray the Government in a bad light. While making this announcement, Nani made an interesting comment.
“On one side farmers are not getting Minimum Support Price. They are not able to recover their investment and are committing suicides. The poor is in financial distress and are sleeping in hunger due to high prices of the essentials as companies like Heritage and Priya Pickles are looting,” Nani said.
It looks like in a hurry to blame Chandrababu Naidu (Heritage) and Ramoji Rao (Priya Foods), Nani may have revealed the plight of the farmers and the poor. If there is no MSP for crops and the prices of essentials are rising, it is the Government failure than any thing.
Not controlling the corporates is also the Government failure. Did Kodali Nani say Jagan is a big failure? Meanwhile, it may be reminded to our readers that Chandrababu Naidu’s family sold Heritage Retail which deals with Grocery business to Future Retail in the year 2016.
They got a minor stake in Future Retail as a result and they also exited from it in December 2020. Chandrababu’s family is only into the dairy business right now which is not related to the prices of rice and pulses as alleged by Nani.
