YS Jagan Announce Multiple Schemes for the Needy:- Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy during his maiden Independence Day speech on Thursday announced that government would go on with current policies.
According to the report, he backed the legislations that were of late enacted including providing reservation in jobs for locals. He further said the government has taken many pioneering decisions and would comply with it.
Besides listing out the welfare schemes and legislations that his government has undertaken thus far, Reddy launched his government’s flagship program “Village Volunteers System” for taking governance to people’s door-steps by involving over 2.8 lakh volunteers.
He also announced the launch of village secretariats from October 2 in a bid to transform the volunteers into a bridge between the government and the people. The volunteers would first determine the beneficiaries, get to know their problems, and then delineate the schemes being provided by the government for them.
The idea behind implementing the scheme, that will be reaching the poorest of the poor and make all the villages self-sufficient, is to inculcate confidence among the people and to guarantee basic facilities at their doorsteps.
Reddy also announced that YSR Rythu Bharosa scheme would start from October 15 under which, free electricity will be provided to farmers and each farmer will get Rs 12,500 per year for the next four years.
Speaking about ‘Amma Vodi’ scheme which would be launched on January 26 next year, Reddy said all mothers will be given Rs 15,000 per year to educate their children.
