Sangareddy, Telangana: A. Revanth Reddy, president of the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) has urged the State government to take steps to revive the Trident Sugar factory and ensure that it starts operations by the end of the season.

According to the news report published in Thehindu.com, he said, “Sugarcane farmers are forced to sell their cane to the private sugar mills that are far away from their fields and they have to bear transportation costs.”

“Why not government spare Rs 2,000 crore for farmers of Zaheerabad area and take over Trident Sugar to protect interests of farmers?”, he said.

Reddy said that till the government takes steps to revive the closed sugar mill, it should make arrangements to help farmers take their cane to the neighbouring sugar mills in Karnataka.
