“The state government is committed to the people’s welfare to attain a sustainable development through proper planning to eradicate poverty,” said Finance Minister, Yanamala Ramakrsihnudu. He, along with Deputy Chief Minister, Nimmakayala China Rajappa participated in the Janmabhoomi -Maa Vuru programme at Vemavaram village in Thondangi Mandal here on Tuesday evening.
Speaking in the inaugural day meeting of the Janmabhoomi, Yanamala said that the programme was aimed at solving public issues from the grassroots-level and necessary budgetary allocations would be made based on the representations received from the public.
Yanamala also said that Rs 20,000 crore were being spent on weaker sections housing in the state and steps would be taken to develop CC roads in all the coastal villages. He further informed that a six-lane highway would be developed between Vizag and Kakinada. He said this would bring a major change in the coastal villages and help those regions to achieve progress.
With regard to the industrial development in SEZ (Special Economic Zone), Yanamala said that only the non-polluting industries would be encouraged in these areas and people’s support was essential for gaining employment for the youth through these industries.
Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Chief Minister, Rajappa said that many welfare programmes have been implemented in the state during their three-and-a-half-year-old rule, which resulted in the reduced grievance petitions in this phase of Janmabhoomi.
