While Andhra Pradesh former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated several schemes for the benefit of the people of Andhra Pradesh, Jaganmohan Reddy began to rename the initiatives of the TDP chief
Amaravati: A day after lashing out at the Leader of Opposition in the Assembly House, Andhra Pradesh chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy on Friday (June 14) reviewed and renamed various schemes and policies of the previous government led by Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu.
According to reports, Jaganmohan Reddy-led YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) renamed "NTR Vaidya Seva" as "YSR Arogyasri", and a government order has been released in this regard. The "Arogyasri" scheme was inaugurated by late former chief minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy and was renamed as "NTR Vaidya Seva" during the Telugu Desam Party’s reign in the state.
While "NTR Bharosa" welfare pensions scheme was renamed as "YSR Aasara", the mid-day meal scheme has been renamed 'YSR Akshaya Patra'.
"Annadata Sukhibhava", a scheme which was announced by the TDP before forming the government, was cancelled by Jagan. The CM introduced a new scheme called "YSR Rytu Bharosa". Both schemes aim at providing input subsidy to farmers.
The state government also introduced "Rajanna Badibata' scheme on the lines of "Badikosta" scheme of the previous government.
The reports further stated that the names of other schemes like "Chandranna Bima" are likely to be changed in the coming days.
