Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s social protection policies are aimed at empowering and uplifting women, Housing Minister and district official Ch. Ranganatha Raju said.
The minister was speaking after paying checks for the second phase of Aasara at Velagapudi Ramakrishna Memorial College in Repalle.
âThe YSR Aasara program is for women who have used loans. One of the electoral promises made during Mr. Jagan’s padayatra is the waiver of loans. Out of the 6,500 crore, Guntur district got 620.99 crore, Repalle constituency 49.08 crore and Nagaram mandal got 7.99 crore, âMr. Raju said.
In addition, the Pedarandariki Illu program aimed to build houses for 30 lakhs and the Nadu-Nedu program gave schools a new face. The YSR Arogyasri program has now been expanded to cover 2,000 illnesses and a new medical college was being built in each parliamentary constituency, he said.
MP Mopidevi Venkata Ramana Rao said women have the ability to stand up and are good at financial discipline. Navaratnalu was intended to bring economic development to all strata of society.
District collector Vivek Yadav said 7.99 crore was credited to the accounts of 1,044 SHG women. The education and health scenario would change quickly after the launch of the Nadu-Nedu program, he said.
Zilla Parishat chairman Henry Christina said the programs were started to bring a smile to every person in the state. The minister later laid the foundation stone for the village secretariat in Repalle.
