VIJAYAWADA: The ruling YSR Congress is giving top priority to creating a positive response to the government from the masses through the ongoing Gadapa Gadapaku Mana Prabhutvam Mass Contact Programme.

The government booklet stated that 1.40 crore families were benefiting from the welfare schemes out of total of 1.67 crore families in AP; and 6.91 crore people are benefitting from multiple welfare schemes.

The MLAs are presenting the booklet along with a letter from CM Jagan to every house.
