Turmeric farmers in Nizamabad have set up “yellow boards” across the districts in response to the non-response from the Union government over Telangana’s appeal to sanction a turmeric board in Nizamabad. They are especially frustrated with BJP MP from Nizamabad, D Arvind, for failing to fulfill his promise of getting the board approved. During the 2019 Parliament elections, Arvind promised the turmeric farmers to set up a Turmeric Board and even signed a judicial bond paper stating that he would prevail upon the Union Government and get the turmeric board approved within five days of winning the elections. However, despite repeated appeals from the Telangana Government and farmers, the Union Government has been rejecting the appeals, citing different reasons. In response, posters and hoardings mocking the BJP have surfaced across the district, reminding Arvind of his poll promise. The Union Government has recently stated that there is no proposal to set up a turmeric board. Taking serious objection to the BJP Government’s stand on the issue, BRS MLC and former Nizamabad MP K Kavitha had earlier questioned sitting BJP MP Arvind Dharmapuri about his promises to bring the turmeric board to the district in the year 2022.
