KURNOOL: Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy took a delight in public ratification of the schemes introduced by the Congress government in the last four years. Taking part in a gram sabha at Pedda Tumbalam near Adoni in Kurnool district, as part of the Praja Patham on Tuesday, Dr. Reddy repeatedly asked the audience whether they liked free power, Rs. 2-a-kg rice scheme, Arogyasri, ambulance service, NREGS and requested them to respond with a thunderous applause to each scheme, if they were found to be useful to them.

He explained that Praja Patham was launched to address core issues like drinking water problem in summer, power supply and employment. The audience responded saying that there was no water problem and migration of labour in the village but the power supply was erratic.

Additional power

Dr. Reddy told the villagers that the Government was making serious efforts to stretch power supply beyond seven hours to agriculture sector and ensure 24-hour supply to the domestic sector too. This would be possible only after additional generation from the gas supplied by Reliance started. The additional generation would be a reality by July, he assured.

Dr. Reddy said the Government implemented Indira Bhima Yojana (insurance scheme) for the landless poor and Arogyasri to all BPL families. The scheme would apply to Kurnool district from July onwards, he said.
