Telangana Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the farmers are not getting adequate cash from the banks for their agricultural needs.

The TRS government should release funds towards the fourth instalment of its farm loan waiver scheme, Reddy said in a press note issued on Wednesday.

He also demanded that the wages of labourers engaged in works under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme be released through post offices.

He said Congress workers would stage dharna in front of banks in the erstwhile 10 district headquarters towns, which existed prior to the reorganisation of districts in the state.
