Andhra Pradesh stands third in education: Karumuri

Samajika Saadhikara bus yatra gets good response in Chodavaram

Visakhapatnam: Civil supplies minister Karumuri Nageswara Rao has said the efforts put in by Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy have raised the state to the third position in the country in education.

Addressing a public meeting in Chodavaram in Anakapalli district on Tuesday during the Samajika Sadhikara Bus Yatra, Nageswara Rao said the state ranked at 15th place in education during the TD rule of Chandrababu Naidu. Since 2019, the Jagan-led YSRC government effected remarkable changes in the education system.

Deputy chief minister Peedika Rajanna Dora said people should re-elect Jagan Mohan Reddy to ensure continuation of the welfare and development process in the state.

He raised the slogan 'Malli Jagan Ravali, CM Jagane Kavali’, which evoked a good response from the people who assembled in large numbers in this small town.

Lok Sabha member Nadigam Suresh said Chandraababu during his 14 years’ rule offended SCs, BCs and STs. Jagan Mohan Reddy gave them cabinet ranks and social welfare schemes, he said.

“Poverty has come down under the rule of Jagan Mohan Reddy. He understood the problems of the poor during his padayatra,’’ Suresh claimed.

“Chandrababu is now shedding tears for the farmers who lost their crop in the recent cyclone but people still remember the Basheerbagh firing that killed four people,” he said.

Revenue minister Dharmana Prasada Rao said there was negative growth in AP’s agriculture sector during the rule of Chandrababu. But, as per central government records, this sector grew by 5,56 per cent and AP now stood fourth in the country, he claimed.

“It stood 16th during the Naidu term,” he alleged.

He claimed that growth for agriculture in AP was achieved after Jagan Mohan Reddy launched the Rythu Bharosa Kendras, MSP for farm produce, distribution of quality seeds and welfare measures for farmers.

He said Naidu distributed welfare schemes to women on the eve of elections but Jagan Mohan Reddy worked for women empowerment from the day-one of his governance and launched welfare schemes for them.

Anakapalli MP K. Satyavathi said the massive crowd turnout at the meeting indicated a “one- sided war” in Chodavaram in the coming elections.
