The YSRC government, led by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, provided Rs 3,20,812.72 crore to 10,20,18,637 people in the State, which includes Rs 85,295.98 crore and procured food grains worth Rs 51.662 crore, said AP Agriculture Mission Vice Chairman MVS Nagi Reddy.

Addressing the media persons on Friday on the occasion of National Farmers Day, Nagi Reddy said that during the three years of YSRC government rule there were ample rains that paved the way for the increase in Groundwater level, and all irrigation projects across AP were full.

He said that there was good food grain production across the state and the average yield has increased to 13 lakh tonnes per year which include 9 lakh paddy. The government was providing nine hours of uninterruptable quality power to the agriculture sector which increased the production of food grains in the state. Horticulture production increased by 40 per cent of the year average yield which amounts to 104 lakh tonnes, he said.

Nagi Reddy further said that during the TDP regime there were 1623 drought mandal across the State and lakhs of farm labourers and farmers migrated to Bangalore, Chennai, and Kerala and worked as daily wagers.

However, during the three and half year YSRC rule there is no drought mandal and all the migrated farmers and farm labour are back as they have a handful of work in the farming sector due to good yield…

He added that when the YSRC took the reins of AP the TDP left a burden of Rs 2,61,981 crores in debts and arrears of Rs.40,000 crores. The present status is Rs 3,98, 903 crore in debts after clearing the Rs 40,000 arrears left by the TDP.

The agriculture and allied sector GSDP is 16.03 per cent 2019 2020, 8.8 per cent in 2020 2021 and 14.5 percent during 2021 – 2022, added MVS Nagi Reddy.
