    Demand for Free Electricity: Minister Koppula Eshwar Appeals to Farmers

    PEDDAPALLI: State minister Koppula Eshwar has demanded that farmers be forgiven for their comments on the issue of free electricity. The Telangana government provides farmers with 24 hours of free electricity, but the minister’s statement has sparked controversy as he suggested that they should settle for only 3 hours of power supply.

    This issue came to light during Eshwar’s visits to Lambaditanda (K.E.), Kothuru, and Kothapalli villages in the Dharmaram Mandal of Peddapalli district. He spoke to the media about the opposition he faced from Revanth Reddy and how his true intentions were misunderstood. His remarks were seen as a severe insult to the farmers. The minister stated that if the government provides farmers with 24 hours of electricity, it would be considered an act of arrogance, and instead, it would be sufficient to provide them with only 3 hours of power supply.

    Revanth Reddy responded strongly, saying that this arrogance is what led him to break away from the Congress party. Several farmers who were struggling with high electricity bills have unfortunately taken their own lives. The PCCC president called on the minister to apologize and hold protest programs similar to those organized by farmers.

    If the government wants to implement a successful power supply system, it must listen to the grievances of the farmers instead of turning a blind eye, Revanth said.

    In response to this controversy, the government has announced that it will hold discussions with farmers’ organizations to address their concerns and find a mutually agreeable solution. The state government is committed to the welfare of farmers and is determined to resolve any issues they may have.
