The matter of buying cotton in Nagar-Kurnool district has become a mess. Despite the fact that 15 IPP centers have been set up under the government, these conditions have prevailed as farmers mostly approach businessmen. Brokers who drive to villages buy cotton from farmers there and earn money. But in this process farmers lose out in many ways. Recently, a broker who went to the center of Telakopalli to buy cotton. The farmers got angry when they realized that they were cheated up to 4 kg for 30 kg of cotton. A case was registered at the Telakopalla police station after the fraud of the broker was sensed. Brokers are making noise in buying white gold. When the cotton crop was in the hands of the farmers, the brokers entered the villages with eagles. Farmers are being cheated on the weight. When farmers prepare to sell their crops, brokers contact farmers and buy cotton before the buying centers open. So far so good, but the farmers have sunk because of the low weight. There are allegations that officials of the Weights, Measures and Marketing Department are not taking any action against the brokers to prevent these violations. Farmers complain that if the authorities take measures after the cotton procurement starts, there will be no opportunity to cheat more people.
