Telangana seeks more CCI cotton purchase centres

A group of MPs from Telangana, led by the state’s irrigation minister T Harish Rao, recently asked Union minister Smriti Irani to instruct the Cotton Corporation of India to open more purchase centres in the state as bumper harvest is expected this year. Irani has decided to send the textiles secretary to the state to take a call on the demand.

Around 30 lakh metric tonnes of cotton is expected this year as farmers had raised the crop in over 50 per cent of the sown area in khariff season, media reports in the state quoted Harish Rao as saying. The state minister had met Irani in July to discuss this issue.

The central government has sanctioned only 83 purchase centres but the state wants the number to be raised to 143. The centres should also be kept open for at least six consecutive days, Harish Rao said.

He met union environment secretary AN Jha and requested him to expedite the environmental clearance for the Kaleswaram project. He also requested union agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh to release Rs 132 crore pending funds to the state for construction of additional godowns. (DS)
