Mr. Ramakrishnudu expressed concern that both agriculture and its allied sectors were caught in a steep crisis. As a result, the percentage of population dependent on agriculture fell from 70 percent to 50 percent, which was an alarming fall of -20 percent. “All round problems have made the lives of cultivators very difficult to lead in Andhra Pradesh.
