Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh (AP,) on the 6th of June, implemented one of the Navratnalu schemes, the Rythu Bharosa Scheme for farmers of AP.
Mr. Reddy conducted a review meeting with the officials of the Agriculture Department and decided to implement the scheme from the 15th of October 2019.
According to the Rythu Bharosa Scheme, eligible farmers of AP would get an amount of Rs. 12,500 for investment, which Y.S. Jagan promised during the election campaign.
With the implementation of the new scheme, Mr. Reddy dismissed the existing Annadhata Sukhibhawa scheme introduced by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP,) the former AP Government.
N. Chandrababu Naidu, the President of the TDP and the former Chief Minister of AP, introduced the Annadhata Sukhibhawa scheme.
Under the Annadhata Scheme, the family of farmers of AP are getting Rs. 10,000 annually.
During the review meeting, Mr. Jagan also discussed the fake seeds issue, farmer’s loan, and the minimum support price (MSP,) and asked the concerned officials to take these matters seriously.
Jagan Mohan Reddy is following in the footsteps of his father, the late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, the former Chief Minister of AP, and working for the welfare of the citizens of AP.
