Loksatta Rayadurgam in association with Federation of Independent Farmer’s Associations was successful in obtaining an NOC from government allowing farmers to export paddy to other states like Karnataka . According to the new NOC the farmers will be able to export paddy to other states and obtain better prices for their produce. Loksatta convener Mr.Babu said there are many paddy farmers in Rayadurgam and are accruing losses due to the vicarious policies of the state. He requested all the farmers to take permission from the tehseeldar to sell their produce in neighboring states for a better price. Loksatta Rayadurgam has been fighting for a long time on this issue and is a significant victory for their perseverance and deep understanding of issues haunting the common man.
