Change in agriculture sector tangible: YS Jagan
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, has implemented revolutionary changes that have given the agriculture sector a green carpet
AMARAVATI : The Andhra Pradesh administration, according to Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, has implemented revolutionary changes that have given the agriculture sector a green carpet. He asserted that RBKs, which provided nine hours of free electricity and insurance coverage, clearly demonstrate the change.
The Chief Minister concluded the brief discussion on agriculture and related industries in the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly on Wednesday by stating that RBKs are the most tangible village-level organisations providing a wide range of services to farmers. He also pledged that the state would not collect any additional money from metres attached to agricultural motors and that this would help to provide farmers with reliable power for nine hours during the day.
The Chief Minister claimed that all of the promises made in the manifesto to farmers had been carried out. He also announced that nanotechnology will soon be deployed and that roughly 2,000 drones would be put to use for spraying pesticides in a methodical way.
The majority of farmers—87 percent—who own less than three acres of land are the target audience for all welfare programmes, and many of them also receive assistance from other Navaratnalu programmes. He said Chandrababu Naidu, the leader of the opposition, is synonymous with drought, despite the fact that for the past three years, all water bodies, including the main rivers, have been overflowing with water, the level of the groundwater basin has increased, and agricultural output has sharply increased.
In addition to RBKs, the farmers have benefited greatly from the YSR Rythu Bharosa-PM Kisan, insurance programme, zero interest programme, and input subsidy. Qualified individuals were working in the 10,778 RBKs to assist the farmers, and representatives from NITI Ayog, the World Bank, and the FAO also paid visits to observe how they operated. He claimed that during the crisis, the Lab to Land, YSR Yantra Schemes, Calamity, and Price Stabilization Funds all had their place.
He stated that the government is devoted to the welfare of farmers and will keep playing a constructive role in advancing agriculture and related industries.
