100-Days Action Plan To Reopen Anna Canteens

Saturday, July 20, 2024

The YCP government has closed down the Anna canteens which previously provided food to the poor at a nominal price for five years. In some places in these five years, the TDP leaders have not only spent money to restart them, but have been running them continuously.

During the election campaign Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu not only promised to restore Anna canteens when he came back to power, but  also signed the fourth file when his government was formed. With this, now the renovation works of Anna canteens have started.

The government has been making a 100-day action plan to revive all Anna Canteens in the state. A total of 203 canteens were supposed to be opened across the state during the previous TDP government. But the construction of only 184 canteens has been completed.

The construction of the rest of the canteens came to a halt with the change of government. Not only that, the YCP government also used the constructed canteens for other purposes in many places. With this, the officials will make field visits from today to know the actual condition of the canteens across the state. The government has set a deadline for the authorities to reopen 203 canteens in the state by September 21
