KADAPA: Kadapa Member of Parliament Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy disbursed cheques of Rs. 30,000 each to 149 self help group women towards additional subsidy in Indiramma housing colonies with approved lay-outs in Kadapa city on Sunday evening.
Reminiscing former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy recalled at a meeting in Kadapa Municipal Corporation that his father yearned to make women ‘lakhiers’ in order to see smiles on their faces. He asserted that no Chief Minister had such thoughts in the past. He promised to carry forward his father’s goals. Those given cheques include 114 beneficiaries of Mamillapalle, 19 of Azadnagar and three of Ukkayapalle. Kadapa Mayor P. Raveendranatha Reddy, project director of Housing S. Ramasubbu, In-Charge Municipal Commissioner Uma Maheswara Rao and municipal corporators participated.
Meanwhile, Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy urged the Government and the police machinery not to arrest people, particularly youth and students on suspicion - in Telangana, Rayalaseema or coastal Andhra, unless they have concrete videographed evidence of their involvement in destructive activities.
The State is returning to normalcy after pro-Telangana and pro-united Andhra agitations and hasty actions of arresting youth merely on suspicion could lead to flare-ups and fresh agitations. He spoke to Inspector-General of Police Mahender Reddy over telephone and made the appeal.
Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy visited Ameer Peer Dargah, also known as Pedda Dargah, and offered prayers. He called on Sajjad-e-Nasheen Syed Arifullah Hussaini and took his blessings. He placed garlands on the tombs of Peerullah Malik and Ameenullah Malik.
Government Chief Whip Sailajanath, Kadapa Mayor P. Raveendranatha Reddy, Congress MLA of Rayachoti G. Srikanth Reddy, DCC president K. Suresh Babu and other leaders accompanied him.
