Revenue Minister N. Raghuveera Reddy has assured sanctioning of new rations cards and pensions for all eligible people. He said nine varieties of essential commodities would be supplied through fair price shops under a new scheme soon.

Participating in the ‘Revenue Sadassu’ at Peddapalle village in Yelamancili mandal here on Saturday, he said people without spending a rupee can get their grievances addressed at the revenue meet. The exercise was aimed at creating a sense of confidence in the government among the affected people, he said.

The Minister lauded the local youth who were instrumental in protecting the village lakes and tanks from illegal occupation.

The Minister asked the district Collector V. Sheshadri to take legal steps in taking possession of the occupied land in the context of High Court stay in vogue on the issue.

Mr. Raghuveera Reddy called upon the youth to come forward in playing an active role in protecting village assets from vested interests.
