Andhra Pradesh’s CM Jagan Mohan Reddy fulfilling a poll promise
Andhra Pradesh's Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, in a move targeted at fulfilling the poll promises concerning political representation of women, has announced 50% reservation for women in the market committee chairpersons posts. The YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) government has determined to provide half of the market chairman posts, committee posts to women by the end of October.

The government has already issued a GO, and based on that 50% reservation has been allotted to SC/ST and OBCs. An official said, “Half of the respective market committee members would consist of women, who are not having a balanced and proportionate political representation. The filling up of the posts may start by October end.” The official added, “With this, there would be 50% quota for women as well as for SC/ST, and BCs in filling up the market committees.”

The CM announced in a review meeting of Marketing and Agriculture departments at Tadepalli camp office that a committee would look into the losses in district co-operative banks and a study would be conducted by an organization on how to strengthen these banks. The CM also discussed about minimum support prices for crops, farmers’ independence besides reduction of middlemen.
