Going by the Finance Minister’s statements, the full budget will have sizeable allocations for the ‘Navaratnalu’ schemes Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has promised in the run-up to the elections.
Agriculture, social welfare, medical and health, and education sectors would get the bulk of allocations as had been decided in the first Cabinet meeting on June 10.
Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy had already announced the launch of ‘YSR Rythu Bharosa’, increased the social security pensions and started implementing the ‘Amma Vodi’ scheme in government schools. Besides, he had expressed the resolve to complete the pending irrigation projects, including Polavaram, after plugging the alleged leakage of funds.
