Congress: KCR doing injustice 4.7.2019
Khammam: The Congress leaders alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao was doing injustice to the farmers of Khammam and Bhadradi-Kothagudem districts. Congress leaders – Bellam Venu, ZPTC and  party leaders V. Upender, Naveen, Venkateswarlu and Veerababu, in a joint press meet here on Wednesday, said that the district would turn into a desert if the government built a barrage at Tupakulagudem on Godavari river. "Sitarama lift irrigation project (SLIP) will not get water if the barrage and there is built and there will be no chance of irrigation of lands in the two districts if the barrage comes up.

India suffers driest June in 5 years, fears for crops and economy 1.7.2019
Mumbai: India had its driest June in five years due to a delay in monsoon rains, the weather department said late on Sunday, raising fears for crops and the broader economy. Overall, rains were a third below average, although in some states, including the sugar cane growing northern state of Uttar Pradesh, they were as much as 61 per cent down, data from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) showed. Over half of country's arable land relies on rainfall, while agriculture makes up about 15 per cent of Asia's third-largest economy, which is already suffering a slowdown. The monsoon usually covers nearly the entire country by July 1, but has covered less than two-thirds so far this year, according to the IMD data. If the rains don't improve over the next two to three weeks, the country could face a crisis that hammers harvests and rural demand, analysts said. Companies supplying farmers with everything from tractors to consumer goods would be vulnerable. The country is still recovering from ...
