Revanth Reddy orders probe in BRS Schemes:- The Chief Minister, A. Revanth Reddy, has instructed officials to conduct a thorough investigation into alleged misconduct in the distribution of goats, sheep, and fish during the previous Bharat Rashtra Samiti government. The investigation should cover all aspects, including the selection of recipients, the procurement of goats and sheep, and the methods used to distribute them. If the vigilance reports indicate any shortcomings in the implementation of these programs, the inquiry should be handed over to the Anti-Corruption Bureau. These instructions were given during a meeting with senior officials from the Animal Husbandry and Fisheries department. This meeting is of great importance due to the irregularities highlighted in the recent report by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India. Mr. Revanth Reddy referred to the findings in the CAG report and recalled that a previous investigation by the ACB had revealed that some employees had diverted funds meant for the distribution of sheep into their own accounts. He questioned why the department had not collected further information on this matter.

The loan release for subsequent phases of a scheme, which was initiated in 2017, was halted. The Chief Minister was informed by officials that the National Cooperative Development Corporation (NCDC) had ceased providing loans to the scheme due to objections raised by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) regarding irregularities. Mr. Revanth Reddy inquired about the beneficiaries who had paid 25% of the amount as their share but were not given sheep. The officials explained that ₹430 crore, paid by 85,488 beneficiaries, was in the possession of district Collectors, and another 2.2 lakh beneficiaries had not paid their share of the money.

The Chief Minister expressed concerns regarding the implementation of the fish cultivation scheme and instructed the relevant officials to thoroughly investigate the matter. The officials informed the Chief Minister that the ₹4 per litre incentive for dairy farmers had not been paid for the past three years, resulting in pending dues of ₹203 crore. Emphasizing the importance of releasing the incentive to dairy farmers, the Chief Minister directed the officials to make monthly payments through a streamlined process. It is important to continue providing mobile veterinary services in the 91 recently established mandals. Additionally, measures should be taken to initiate a tender process for this purpose.
