Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy launched 4th round of “Jagananna Vidya Kanuka”, worth of Rs 1,042 crore from Krosur village in Palnadu district on June 12, Monday. As part of this, around 43 lakh school students would get kits. AP schools opened on Monday.

As part of this scheme, each student gets a kit of three pairs of uniforms, text and note books and an English dictionary.
Jagan has been giving importance to education in both government and private schools in AP by introducing English medium and improving infrastructure i n the last four years. A total Rs 32,000 crore has been spent on education since he became the CM in 2019 May.

In an initiative to improve facilities in government schools, Jagan has introduced “Nadu-Nedu” (then and now) drive to compare the situation before and after he came to power. Besides  ramping up physical infrastructure in schools his government laid emphasis on extending foreign scholarships to those who want to go abroad for studies. A total Rs 20 crore was spent on foreign scholarships.   


“Fight is between poor and rich feudal”

Addressing a meeting on the occasion, CM Jagan termed the coming assembly and Lok Sabha elections next year as “fight between us poor and Chandrababu Naidu’s rich fuedals (pettandarlu). Chandrababu never wanted to develop the poor and always interested in retaining power,” said Jagan.  He claimed his government cares for the poor and weaker sections.

“Chandrababu Naidu who served as CM for a total 14 years, both in combined AP and later separate Andhra, never cared for the SCs/STs or BCs or minorities welfare. But, now he is coming up with false promises to these sections,” said Jagan. The CM attacked his predecessor saying: “Chandrababu Naidu knows only two things, promising before polls, and betraying after the polls”.

CM Jagan reminded people that his government in the last four years had distributed around Rs 2.16 lakh crore to them through various welfare schemes. “Do you want our DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) government or Chandrababu Naidu’s BPT (Dochuko, Panchuko and Tinuko) party,” said Jagan. For the first time, Jagan said that BJP is not with him just as some leading media houses which are now backing Chandrababu Naidu.
