Taking a dig at the TDP and Centre for ignoring the bifurcation promise for a steel plant at Kadapa, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that he would lay the foundation stone for the steel plant in the last week of January.

Addressing a mammoth public gathering here on Friday after laying stones for various development projects worth Rs 905 crore in Kamalapuram Constituency, he said that JSW Steel Limited will invest Rs 8,800 crore in two phases for setting up the steel plant in Sunnapurallapalle village in Kadapa district.

Pointing out that debt growth in the State is low now when compared to the previous regime, Jagan Mohan Reddy said, “Why did TDP fail to implement welfare schemes for the public, unlike the YSRCP?”

The Chief Minister asserted that his government was implementing every welfare scheme through Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) in a transparent manner, unlike in the previous TDP regime, which followed DPT – Dochuko, Pachuko, Tinuko (Plunder, Stash, and Devour). In the last three and half years, the government has credited around Rs 1.79 lakh crore to people through DBT under various schemes, while Rs 1.41 lakh crore is credited to people under non-DBT.

In Kamalapuram Constituency alone around Rs 1,017 crore was credited to people through DBT, he said.

Coming down heavily on TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu and Pawan Kalyan for indulging in cheap politics, the Chief Minister said, ‘This is my State and all the five crore people are my family. Providing happiness in every family is my policy, he said, adding that a leader should have credibility and his followers should feel proud of him. The YSRCP government is reaching out to every doorstep to explain the good initiatives of the government to every household, and how the family benefits.”

Listing out the welfare to be taken in the district he said that the government was committed to providing employment to youth. In this regard, steps are being taken to establish Kopparthi industrial development park on 6,914 acres. Once it is completed, an electronic manufacturing cluster will be established on 500 acres that will generate one lakh jobs, while the Jagananna Mega Industrial hub is to be developed on 3,155 acres generating another one lakh jobs after its completion, he said.

The Chief Minister further said that works are progressing at a brisk pace and companies like Dixon and others have commenced their unit works at the Kopparthi Industrial Development Park. To improve it further, the stone was laid for its development at a cost of Rs 270 crore. A 33.4 km pipeline project worth Rs 150 crore was inaugurated to draw water to the Kopparthi Industrial Development Park from the Brahma Sagaram Project and a summer storage tank at a cost of Rs 38 crore.

The other projects include a multi-model logistic park at a cost of Rs 54 crore, stone laid for a cargo terminal, and the development of a new railway line from Krishnapatnam Port at a cost of Rs 68 crore and an executive centre will be established in Kopparthi at a cost of Rs 34.50 crore. All these projects will come as a boon for future generations and provide employment for them, he said. Apart from that stone was also laid for the development of various roads at a cost of Rs 268 crore, Road Over Bridge (RoB) in Kamalapuram with Rs 39 crore, upgradation of Kamalapuram as a Nagar Panchayat.

Administrative sanctions were also given for a bypass road in Kamalapuram at a cost of Rs 88 crore. Of the total, Rs 16 crore alone was spent on land acquisition, he informed. Deputy Chief Minister Amzad Basha, Kamalapuram MLA P Ravindranath Reddy, and several public were also present.
