VISAKHAPATNAM: YSRC government's social justice bus tour – Samajika Nyaya Bheri – set off from Srikakulam on Thursday to end in Anantapur on May 29.

Total 17 ministers belonging to BC, SC, ST and minority communities participated in the yatra. Senior ministers Dharmana Prasadarao and Botsa Satyanarayana flagged off the bus from Seven Road junction in Srikakulam after a public meeting.

“Our government's goal is to ensure that everyone in the community lives with dignity. There should be no differences in the name of caste and religion. Under the leadership of Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, who believes in Dr. B.R. Ambedkar's principles of social justice, our government has ensured social justice for people of the state at a far better level,” the ministers underlined.

They maintained that power now stands transferred to the poorer and weaker sections in the state.

Minister Adimulapu Suresh said the aim of the yatra is to make people aware of benefits the YSRC government is extending through its various schemes to ensure social justice. The bus yatra will explain to people what opportunities are being provided to backward classes in policymaking, he pointed out.
