Says the changes brought about by State govt have helped reverse the decades-old corrupt administrative system, and Rs 2,31,000 cr has been transferred through DBT in last 50 months.
Vijayawada Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Tuesday asserted that social justice has become a reality in the State besides empowerment of weaker sections and rolling out of welfare measures with transparency. In his Independence Day address at the IGM Stadium after hoisting the national flag, he listed out welfare and development achievements of the government. He said that the government has been striving to usher in Grama Swaraj visualised by Mahatma Gandhi by changing the face of agriculture, industry and services.
Andhra Pradesh is the only State that has brought in major changes in the rural administrative system through 15,000 village and ward secretariats, digital libraries, Rythu Bandhu Kendras (RBKs) and the volunteer system to extend quick civic services to the people in full transparency, he said.
The changes have helped reverse the decades-old corrupt administrative system and Rs 2,31,000 crore has been transferred through DBT in the last 50 months in full transparency.
The government has also displayed its commitment to decentralization of administration by increasing the number of districts to 26 from 13 to fulfill the wishes of three regions of the State.
The Chief Minister said that the Government has been waging a war on untouchability which has assumed new garb.
“Opposition to introduction of English medium in schools, allotment of house sites, and construction of houses for the poor is also untouchability. The war will continue till justice is done,” he said.
