Amaravati, Nov 30 : Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy is dedicated to resolve any roblems faced by state farmers, Agriculture Minister Kurasala Kannababu said on Monday in the Assembly as its winter session began.

“We do not have a Chief Minister who indulges in gimmicks before elections. He has said that he will take up any initiative to resolve farmers’ problems wholeheartedly,” said Kannababu

He said that the YSRCP government had fulfilled most of the promises made to farmers and highlighted that Rs 13,463 crore have been directly credited to farmers’ accounts in last 18 months.

Kannababu assailed Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national President Nara Chandrababu Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh for allegedly undermining Reddy’s aerial survey of Nivar- affected districts.

He showed a photograph of Naidu conducting a similar survey when he was CM while enjoying a hot beverage in helicopter and compared it with his successor’s survey.

The Minister said that Reddy takes comprehensive stock of the ground situation whenever natural calamities strike the state.

According to Kannababu, crops on 6.56 lakh hectares of land was damaged during recent torrential downpour. He said the revenue enumeration is still on.

“The CM told us to finish the enumeration by December 10 so as to pay compensation to the affected farmers by December-end. The Agriculture Department and other concerned ones are working towards that goal,” he said.

Kannababu said that the Chief Minister had instructed officials to buy crops from farmers even if it had changed colour.

Meanwhile, the winter session saw a decent turnout of MLAs, including opposition leader Naidu, who was seen wearing a mask.
