On the last day of Phase II of YSRCP’s ‘Samajika Sadhikara’ yatra, Andhra Pradesh Revenue Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao on Tuesday, December 12, said that during CM Chandrababu Naidu tenure agriculture has flourished in the state. 

He said, "Andhra Pradesh has made rapid strides as far as GSDP growth is concerned. The state was ranked 16th in March 2019 but jumped to the 4th rank in 2022-23. Subsequently, the per capita income of AP advanced from 17th rank in March 2019 to 9th rank in 2022-23. This is development! And mind you, I am quoting data from Central agencies like RBI so no one can dare to question it!"

Dharmana Prasad Rao said, "While Chandrababu Naidu was in power, the state's industrial growth stood at a mere 3.2%. However, under CM Jagan, it has tripled, reaching 10.59%. Previously, agriculture, the backbone of the state's economy, was ranked 27th with a negative growth rate of -6.5%. But under CM Jagan, agriculture is now flourishing at +5.56%. We have now moved from the second last to the 7th position in the state!"

MLA Anil Kumar Yadav added, "CM Jagan has nominated a fisherman to the Rajya Sabha! Which other CM has the guts to do this? It is under CM Jagan’s leadership that at the moment, nine fishing harbors are currently being constructed. And it’s not just about infrastructure, his benevolence is what makes him stand apart.

"It was CM Jagan who swiftly assisted the owners whose boats were damaged in a recent fire mishap in Visakhapatnam harbour. Government reacted with absolute alacrity and provided aid within a remarkable four-day timeframe."
