Expressing happiness over the NRIs diligently preserving Telugu culture and traditions while holding influential positions abroad, Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy called upon them to actively participate in the development of Andhra Pradesh by extending financial support and sharing their invaluable exposure and experience.

In a special congratulatory video message sent to the ongoing NATA convention 2023 in Dallas, USA, the Chief Minister conveyed his heartfelt congratulations to the delegates and wished them great success in their convention.

With a strong focus on transforming the education sector, the government has been wholeheartedly implementing programmes like ‘Amma Vodi’, ‘Goru Muddha’, ‘Vidya Kanuka’, and ‘Vasathi Deevena’ to facilitate hassle-free education, stated the Chief Minister. He emphasised that the government firmly believes education to be the most potent weapon for bringing about positive change in society.

The Chief Minister highlighted the revolutionary changes brought about in the education sector over the past four years in the state, empowering students to achieve great heights and become global citizens.

Addressing the Telugu diaspora, the Chief Minister shared that through the ‘Nadu-Nedu’ programme, the government has been enhancing the basic infrastructure of government schools, providing tablets to students and teachers from 8th grade onwards, introducing the subject-teacher concept from 3rd class, distributing bilingual textbooks, initiating digital teaching through Interactive Flat Panels (IFPs) from 6th class, and offering TOEFL training to students from 3rd to 10th class. Starting from the next academic year, TOEFL training will also be provided to intermediate students, he added, emphasising that the introduction of English medium education has enabled students to compete at the national and international levels for corporate jobs.

“You all, born on Telugu soil, are representing the poor and middle-class sections of our society, working in top positions as CEOs, university professors, NASA scientists, doctors, and successful business magnates. We take immense pride in your remarkable achievements driven by unwavering dedication and commitment,” he remarked.
The Chief Minister also acknowledged witnessing similar determination and focus among the Telugu children within the state.

“Our State is undergoing a revolutionary transformation in the fields of education, healthcare, agriculture, and housing for the betterment of future generations. We are also ensuring transparent implementation of welfare programs. To further these changes, Andhra Pradesh needs your support,” he appealed to them, encouraging them to contribute in any way possible for the state’s growth.

While financial support plays a vital role in the state’s development, the Chief Minister emphasised the importance of their exposure, experience, and expertise for overall progress.

He noted that the tangible changes can be observed across various sectors as well. “Since many of you hail from our villages, you can witness these changes firsthand.

Village secretariats, employing 10 young individuals each, are transparently delivering over 600 civic services to the people. Volunteers are providing doorstep delivery of pensions and ration,” he informed, adding that Rythu Bharosa Kendras (RBKs) are guiding farmers from seed procurement to selling their agricultural produce.

The Chief Minister highlighted the unprecedented extension of preventive healthcare through village clinics and family doctors across the state. He further mentioned that the government has filled 48,000 vacant positions in the medical and health department, established 17 new medical colleges, and strengthened Primary Health Centres (PHCs), area, district, and teaching hospitals with improved infrastructure and medicines.

“To ensure future food security, we are bolstering the agricultural sector and rural economy. Additionally, we are constructing 4 new ports, 10 fishing harbors, and developing 3 industrial corridors,” he shared in his message to the NRIs.

Andhra Pradesh has consistently secured the top position in the Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) rankings for the past three years and is among the top four or five states in sustainable development goals, the Chief Minister proudly stated.

He extended his special wishes to NATA office bearers Sridhar, Anil, Prem Sagar, and others. “I still cherish the love and affection you showed me during the convention four years ago,” he expressed, emphasizing the inspiration they provide to the people in Andhra Pradesh.
