Vijayawada: Terming the Andhra Pradesh Budget 2022-23 as a People's Budget, Chief Minister Jagan Reddy said on Friday that his government’s performance in the past three years was reflected in the positive mandate the YSRC got in local bodies polls. "We did transparent governance," he said.
Speaking in the state assembly, the Chief Minister said a budget of Rs 2.56 lakh crore has been introduced for the year 2022-23. In tune with the promises in the YSRC election manifesto, the budget for the coming fiscal fulfills the aspirations of the people in both welfare and development, he said.
Jagan said his government has fulfilled 95 per cent of the poll promises in three years, despite a fall in revenue due to Covid19. "This government stood by the people at all times."
He noted that the government released the welfare calendar and is following the same. "This is in essence a welfare calendar for the poor and a ‘worries calendar’ for the Leader of Opposition Chandrababu Naidu," the CM said.
Jagan Reddy predicted that this will prove to be a ‘Farewell Calendar’ to Naidu. "Our government is implementing the welfare calendar in a transparent manner by Direct Beneficiary Transfer (DBT), putting money directly into the bank accounts of the beneficiaries, without giving scope for exploitation by intermediaries."
The chief minister said those who had voted for the TD in the past were now backing the YSRC government as they have witnessed a corruption-free welfare governance. Hence, they gave us a huge mandate in the local body polls.
Going into the budget details, the CM said Rs 55,000 crore was credited to welfare scheme beneficiaries through DBT and another Rs 17305 crore spent on Non-DBT schemes.
The chief minister released the welfare calendar for the 2022-2023 fiscal, stressing that the government is implementing various schemes and programmes for the welfare and development of all sections of the society.
