Jagan scraps Naidu's scheme

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has scrapped 'Annadata Sukhibhava'  a farmers' allowance scheme launched by former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu earlier this year. 

The scheme which promised to pay the farmers an allowance of Rs 10,000/- to enable them to purchase seeds, fertilizers, and other agriculture supporting products and was modeled on Telangana Government's Rythu Bandhu. The scheme was meant to support the farmers by providing them a fixed sum irrespective of the size of their lands.

At a review meeting held at CM Camp office, Jagan asked the agriculture department officials to do away with Naidu's scheme as it served no purpose. He asked the officials to improve the scheme which had many gaps and come up with a better one. Jagan announced that the new scheme would be called 'YSR Rythu Bharosa' which was a part of his poll promise and among his 'Navratnas'. 

'YSR Rythu Bharosa' would come into effect from October 15th and would provide the farmers with a benefits of Rs 12,500/-. A price stabilisation fund worth Rs 3000 crores was also announced to ensure remunerative prices for the farmers across the state. Additionally, the officials were directed to provide all the information regarding the fertisers, seeds and pesticides to be passed on to village secretariats which would be established in every village by Gandhi Jayanti
