Import and transportation
of raw sugar should be stopped
— C.M.

Ensure payment of SAP and other
facilities in a time bound manner to the cane farmers
— Mayawati

Lucknow : 04 November 2009

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati, with a view
to getting the fields of the cane growers ready for Rabi sowing,
has directed the officers to immediately stop the import of raw
sugar through railway rack. She further directed the officers to
ensure that the cane growers were provided payment of SAP
announced by the state government and other facilities at the
earliest. She said that the government would not tolerate that the
interests of the farmers were neglected. She warned that if the
officers showed any laxity in the affairs of the cane growers and
any complaint was received, their responsibility would be fixed and
action would be taken against them.

The Cabinet Secretary Mr. Shashank Shekhar Singh, while
giving the information regarding the directives of the Chief
Minister to the media persons through a press conference held at
the Lal Bahadur Shashtri Bhawan here today, said that the U.P.
Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati was very sensitive about the interests
of the 40 lakh cane farmers.

Giving information regarding the directives of the Chief
Minister given for the welfare of the cane growers, Mr. Singh said
that the state government was making all possible efforts to
increase the income of the cane growers by ensuring more and
more cane production. For that, the cane growers were being
provided five new varieties of sugar cane which would give
enhanced yield. Besides, early maturing cane varieties were also
being promoted.

The Cabinet Secretary said that keeping in view all the
aspects of cane production and its price U.P. Government had
fixed SAP Rs. 25 per quintal more for 2009-10 in comparison to
last year. Such an increase had never been made earlier. This
increase was more than the increase announced by Haryana and
Panjab Governments. The farmers of the State would be benefited
by this increase, he added.

Mr. Singh said that Government of India had also made this
arrangement by amendment in Sugar Cane Control Order —1966
(Central), that if the State Government fixes State Advised Price
(SAP) more than the fair and remunerative price (FRP), then the
State Government would herself bear the burden of more payment
than FRP. The Government of India did not find it necessary to
take the State Government into confidence before making
amendment/arrangement regarding FRP, he added.

The Cabinet Secretary said that Government of India had
indirectly ended the right of the State Government to fix sugar
cane price, which had been recognized by the Supreme Court. In
such a way, the interests of about 40 lakh farmers of the State
had been overlooked. He said that keeping in view the interest of
cane farmers, the Chief Minister had drawn the attention of the
Central Government towards the incompatibilities with regard to
FRP. She had requested to the Prime Minister to reconsider FRP
arrangement through writing a letter, he added.

Mr. Singh said that Government of India had fixed the FRP
Rs. 129.84 per quintal for crushing season for 2009-10 on the
basis of 9.5 per cent recovery, which comes to Rs. 123 per quintal
on the basis of 9 per cent recovery taken in earlier crushing
seasons. While the State Government had announced SAP Rs. 170
and Rs. 165 per quintal for early growing and general cane verities
respectively.

The Cabinet Secretary said that with a view to making fields
vacant for sowing Rabi crops timely in western area of the State,
the Government by issuing cane reservation order had directed
the sugar mills to start crushing the canes immediately, besides,
providing all the facilities to cane farmers being given by State
Government for cane development.

Condemned

Bangalore: Members of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have condemned
the “barbaric behaviour” of the ASC personnel towrds residents of Gowthampur
Colony slum at Domlur, here on Thursday.Party members alleged that the personnel
regularly accuse residents of the slum for “occupying their land”.

These victims have been left high and dry


Displaced families say nothing much has been done to solve their
problems

Thirty-five houses were completely damaged on Kurvakala island

People say compensation is yet to reach them

village in Raichur taluk

Atkur (Raichur taluk): “We have been living without proper shelter
for the past one month. We have not got foodgrains or clothes, and also
no compensation for the loss of houses and crops. No official or
elected representative has visited us,” says a group of displaced
families from the flood-hit Atkur village and Kurvakala island.

After the devastation, these people have made the rehabilitation colony near Atkur village in Raichur taluk their “home.”

A total of 285 families live in Kurvakala island; about 35 houses
here were completely damaged and more than 100 partially. The remaining
houses have become unfit to living after the rain and floods.

Nearly 100 houses collapsed and more than 30 huts were washed away
in the floods at Atkoor, a village with a population of about 600.

When this correspondent visited the existing rehabilitation colony
near Atkur on Thursday, he found that more than 12 families from Atkur
and Kurvakala had made the corridors of some public buildings their
“home.”

There was no drinking water and other facilities. Janglemma,
Hanumanthi and Bheemanna, whose mud houses at Kurvakala collapsed, and
Mallamma, Thikkanna, Thippamma and Kuntenna, whose huts in Atkur
village were washed away in the deluge, said that they had lost
everything.

A one-time supply of foodgrains was made on October 2. Later, they
were given nothing. There was also shortage of drinking water and no
one had received compensation from the Government.

Mr. Thikkanna said that three days ago wooden poles were dumped nearby, but work on erecting sheds was yet to start.

As there has been a delay in the construction of sheds, the
displaced families from Kurvakala and Atkur, most of whom are small and
marginal farmers and agricultural labourers, are having a tough time.

According to officials, the Government has not set up temporary
sheds for the displaced people of Kurvakala island as it had already
paid compensation towards acquisition of their houses and set up a
rehabilitation colony near Atkur village, as the island was located
within the backwater of the Jurala project.


Survey

The district administration, which completed a survey of the
affected families at Atkur and Kurvakala, has not done much to
alleviate the sufferings of the displaced families. Even the village
accountants have made no contact with these families to settle the
compensation.

Now, the Government has proposed to relocate Atkur and there is a plan to acquire 47 acres of land towards it.
