Anantapur: Minister for Agriculture N. Raghuveera Reddy on Saturday distributed assets worth Rs. 60 crore to beneficiaries of Animal Husbandry, Horticulture and Self-Help Group women.

Speaking at the re-dedication meeting of Praja Patham programme organised at the Lalitha Kala Parishath here, Mr. Raghuveera Reddy said the Praja Patham programme had been a great success in the district with large number of people turning up every where and the officials and people's representatives actively participating.

Indirectly hitting out at the opposition, he said those who criticised the programme were forced to participate in the programme bowing to people's pressure. He also called for making Rythu Chaitanya Yatras a success.

MP Anantha Venkatarama Reddy, Collector B. Janardhan Reddy were present.
