He also announced to implement ‘Rytu Bharosa’ scheme on October 15, as promised in YSRCP’s manifesto, which would provide Rs 12,500 per year to farmers, totalling Rs 50,000 in five years.
Asked about fake seeds increasing distribution and to bring in Seed Act in the state, CM Jagan said that he would convene a separate assembly session to discuss farmers’ issue separately.
CM Jagan also decided to set up Market prices stabilization with Rs 3000 crores Fund in the upcoming State Budget.
