He said that the Government has so far spent a whopping Rs.1,75,007crore under farmers’ welfare schemes alone with major part being incurred on YSR Rythu Bharosa- PM Kisan.

In the last four years, Government has disbursed Rs.33, 209.81crore under Rythu Bharosa extending an annual assistance of Rs. 13,500 each, he said, adding that the Government is paying an excess of Rs, 17,500 to each eligible farmer under the scheme than what YSRCP promised in the election manifesto.

Under Rythu Bharosa, first instalment of Rs.7500 is paid in May for Kharif sowing expenses every year and the second instalment of Rs.4000 in October or November towards Kharif harvesting and Rabi expenses while the third instalment of Rs. 2000 is paid in January or February.

The benefit is also extended to the farmers cultivating RoFR and endowment lands along with those cultivating own lands.

He said that an amount of Rs. 2, 40,000crore has been so far spent through DBT welfare schemes for the benefit of various weaker sections of society while the previous TDP regime totally neglected the welfare part.

“Ours is the only Government which is supplying nine-hour free power supply during daytime to the farmers spending Rs. 1700crore on feeder expansion and which has established 10778 Rythu Bharosa Kendras handholding them from purchasing seeds to selling agricultural produce for MSP while TDP Government struggled to supply even 7-hour power supply,” he said, calling upon the people to see the qualitative difference.

Jagan breaks one more ‘Navaratnalu’ promise

After coming to power, CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy continued saying that his government would treat the party manifesto and ‘Navaratnalu’ promises as the Bible, the Quran and the Bhagavad-Gita. Over the weeks, these grand promises are being partially or fully broken one by one. Now, the flagship promise on Rythu Bharosa is in doubts. A crop investment support of Rs 12,500 was promised to farmers in the YCP manifesto. But, the Jagan Reddy government has informed in the Assembly that AP will be giving only Rs 6,500 each to the farmers.

Jagan is not openly explaining about the manner of implementing Rythu Bharosa but it is clear now that he is going to give only half of the promised amount. The remaining Rs 6,000 will be given by the Centre separately under Rythu Samman national level programme. A general feeling is gaining ground that Jagan would not pass on full benefits as promised under Navaratnalu any more. Old age pension beneficiaries thought they would get Rs 3000 but eventually, they got just Rs 2250. No strong beginning is made towards total prohibition also.

Rahul consoles Anantapuramu “victims” of TDP rule


AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi assured the people of Andhra Pradesh that he would go to any place to fight for the implementation of Polavaram project and to achieve the special category status to the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Addressing a rally in Obuladevaracheruvu village in Anantapuramu district on Friday he said he would not back out from these demands like TDP and BJP.

Recalling that BJP had assured to bestow special status on AP,  he said now both TDP and YSRC leaders had conveniently compromised with Modi government.  Rahul said  to reach the top rank among the Indian states AP needs special category status.

He said Congress would stand by the farmers and weavers of the state and fight for the improvement of their lives.

” My grandmother Indiramma had a special bond with Andhra Pradesh people. She visited this village when I was a child. I am proud to say that I too have an equally strong bond with the people of Andhra Pradesh,” he said.

Rahul who arrived in the village this morning  from Bengaluru to console the families of farmers and weavers whose committed suicide because of growing indebtedness during the one year rule of TDP.

He  accused PM Modi of trying to rob the lands of formers to give away them to corporate companies.

“ The UPA government had  brought about the land acquisition bill in such a manner that no government can take away their lands on the pretext of SEZs or some other purposes. Now, Modi government is planning to dilute statue. We won’t allow,” he declared.

Rahul gave away ex-gratia on behalf of Congress party to 45 families.

He visited the place and planted a sapling  where his grand mother Indira Gandhi  addressed the public meeting in 1979.

Rahul, after interacting with farmers launched his 30 km-long  Padayatra from Obuladevaracheruvu to Mamillakunta village to meet other families of farmers and weavers.

Earlier,former union minister and Congress leader K Chiranjeevi rapped Telugu Desam government for cheating farmers in the form of  loan-waiver. He said suicides among the farmers were on the rise in state. In the past one year, Chiranjeevi  said, state reported an increase of 35 per cent in suicides. This data was official and compiled by national crime records bureau, he added.

He lambasted the TDP chief minister Naidu for cheating poor farmers after getting votes on the promise of loan waiver.

He said a farmer present in the meeting told him that for a loan of about Rs 4000 he got only Rs 110 waiver.

“Just like Sonia visited the area before 2004 to console the families of farmers who committed suicide as a result of 9-year TDP rule, Rahul was here to again console and reassure the victims of present TDP rule.  He said as in 2004, in 2019 as well, history would be repeated and Congress would come to power,” Chiranjeevi said.

PCC president N Raghuvira Reddy translated Rahul’s speech in to Telugu.

All senior leaders from the state including C Ramanchandraiah, KVP Ramachandra Rao, T Subbiramireddy etc participated in Padayatra.

state bandh: Jagan’s ultimatum to CM


YSR Congress party president and leader of opposition YS Jaganmohan Reddy issued an ultimatum to state government to find a solution to the municipal sanitary workers strike in four days or else, he said, his party would give a call for a state-wide bandh.

Jagan, who was on Rythu Bharos Yatra in Anantapuram district, spoke to municipal workers who came down to Kambaduru where he was camping to present a memorandum seeking his support to their demands.

Municipal workers across the state have been on strike for two weeks demanding a hike in their wages.

Jagan took strong objection to the government’s apathy towards striking employees, contract, and outsourcing workers. Stating that the increase of wages for municipal workers would not put a burden more than Rs 200 crore to Rs 300 crore he said  allowing the strike to continue would cost more to the society if the non-cleaning of streets triggered an outbreak of deceases. He asked Naidu to call the employees for talks and find a solution to the legitimate issues raised by them.
