DBT in YSRCP regime is transparent, TDP exploited it: Jagan

AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy credited Rs 193.31 crore for the fourth consecutive year under YSR 'Nethanna Nestham' into the bank accounts of 80,546 weaver families here on Thursday.

Addressing a meeting organised to mark the occasion in Pedana of Krishna district, the Chief Minister recalled the freedom movement during which charka and handloom changed the dynamics of the country. He maintained that he had kept his promise made to weavers during his 3,648-km Padayatra by introducing the YSR Nethanna Nestham scheme, which benefits weavers having their own loom with a financial assistance of Rs 24,000 each year to help them upgrade their skills.

The Chief Minister said that the government had spent Rs 776.13 crore on weaver families in the last three years under the 'Nethanna Nestham' and asserted that the financial assistance was being provided in the most transparent way. Further, he said that his government was also providing weavers with an e-marketing facility through APCO and other e-commerce sites improving the income of weavers.

The Chief Minister said that the government was committed to the upliftment of the BC communities in the State and termed them as the backbone classes, instead of backward classes. Talking about reservations, he said that SC, ST, BC and Minorities had been getting priority in all positions and added that the lion's share of his cabinet consisted of them. Further, he asserted that his government was implementing every welfare scheme through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) in a transparent manner, unlike in the previous TDP regime, which followed DPT – Dochuko, Panchuko, Tinuko (Rob, Share and Eat).

Taking a dig at the Opposition TDP and a section of the media supporting it, the Chief Minister reiterated that they were all trying to mislead the people with malicious propaganda against the government. He said that he might not have the powerful media houses for him, but all he had was the support of people and God's blessings.

Earlier, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy also announced development projects for Krishna District. After crediting the Nethanna Nestham money into the beneficiaries' bank accounts, the Chief Minister announced that the Andhra Pradesh High Court gave the approval for constructing of Machilipatnam Port and stated that he would soon lay a foundation stone for the work to start. Ministers Jogi Ramesh, Gudivada Amarnath, RK Roja, MLAs Perni Venkataramaiah, Kodali Venkateswara Rao, K Parthasarathy and other officials were present in the ceremony.
