Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jaganmohan Reddy's first cabinet meeting was a rather eventful one. The meeting saw some key items being approved such as increasing the salaries of ASHA workers and granting 27 % Interim relief for the government employees. The IR which will cost the state exchequer Rs 815 crores will benefit 4 lakh state government employees and will be implemented from July 1st.
However, one decision that has attracted the most attention is the decision of the AP government to conduct a judicial probe into irregularities of various government departments during the tenure of former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. To include transparency in the process, Jagan directed the ministers and officials to identify the departments where the irregularities occurred and upload the same on government's portal to ask for people's suggestions.
Jagan informed that already an appointment of a judicial commission has been requested to the AP High Court Justice and that the government will follow the recommendation of the body for the probe. Jagan who has already indicated that corruption of no level will be tolerated by him even informed that no ministers will be spared if they face any corruption charges and will be sacked immediately.
