Farm Labourers To Get Insurance Scheme In Telangana:- Telangana Government started off with a historic move by providing insurance policies to all the farmers across the state and the government stepped ahead to bear the premiums. Now in an unexpected move lakhs of agriculture labourers too will be added in the insurance scheme. The state government is considering the inclusion of labourers in the scheme at the earliest. Telangana Finance Minister Etela Rajendar confirmed the news while he spoke to Telangana Today.
"Agriculture labourers face tough times throughout the year and they lead a miserable life. Their lives are dedicated to the fields and hence we are in plans to add them too in the insurance scheme" said Etela Rajendar. Farmers Coordination Committee chairman Gutha Sukender Reddy earlier confirmed the news and he said that the decision will be out soon. Telangana government has been asking the Centre to link the Employment Guarantee Scheme (EGS).
