Chandrababu Naidu First Signed On Five Key Poll Promises

Saturday, July 20, 2024

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu soon after assuming office in his chamber in the first block of the Secretariat on Thursday at 4.41 PM, a day after being sworn-in as Chief Minister, signed on five key issues fulfilling his promises to people during the election campaign.

As promised during the election, the CM signed the Mega DSC file for the filling of 16,347 teacher posts. He also signed the AP Land Titling Act cancellation file. The third filed he signed was increasing social pensions from Rs 3,000 to Rs 4,000, the fourth Anna canteens and the fifth skill calculation.

The lack of jobs and investments was one of the TDP’s major poll planks. On the campaign trail, the Naidu accused Jagan of taking the state “20 years back” with his “regressive policies”. He criticized his predecessor for going back on the promise to publish an annual district selection committee (DSC) job calendar.

The YSRCP government passed the Land Titling Act in September 2022 to digitize land survey records through new surveys. Naidu who had termed the Act a “Land Grabbing Act” during the campaign vowed to revoke it if voted to power.

He alleged that the YSRCP had brought in the law to take over people’s lands in the name of surveys. The issue struck a chord with people, especially in the wake of alleged discrepancies in a similar “Dharani portal” in neighboring Telangana.

Ahead of the elections, Naidu provided his twist on the Opposition’s national caste census demand by demanding a skill census.

“Through a skill census, we will gauge the skill level of people and compare it to the global skill requirement. This will help us address the skill shortcomings and make people more employable. Thus, it will automatically lead to welfare,” he said at the time.

The government has also decided to get the Anna canteen scheme up and running. The previous Naidu government started the scheme, as part of which breakfast, lunch and dinner were provided for Rs 5, in 2018.

Named after TDP founder NT Rama Rao, who was popularly referred to as “Anna (elder brother)”, the Jagan government tweaked the scheme after coming to power but it never took off. TDP leaders allege that the YSRCP deliberately finished off the scheme to end NTR’s legacy.
