Andhra Pradesh: Congress MP accuses YSRCP, TDP for closure of sugar mills

Vizianagaram: Bobbili Srinu, the Congress candidate for the Vizianagaram Lok Sabha constituency, accused both the YSRCP and the TDP governments on April 25 (Thursday) of causing the closure of sugar factories in Vizianagaram district, reported The Hindu.

Speaking to the media, he stated that the closure of agricultural-based industries had left residents, especially farmers, without job opportunities.

“Sugar factories in Latchayyapeta and Bhimsingi closed because the government didn’t address the concerns of the management and sugarcane farmers. Local jute industries stopped production due to tough competition from Bangladesh products. Instead of getting a helping hand, the jute factories were converted into real estate ventures at the behest of the ruling party leaders,” said Mr Bobbili Srinu.

He pledged to provide job training for graduates and ensure employment opportunities. “If the State receives Special Category Status, new industries will be established in the district,” he added.
