Seva Mitra, Seva Ratna and Seva Vajra awards presented to volunteers

Tirupati: It is the volunteers, who are responsible for the successful implementation of welfare schemes enhancing the government image, stated city MLA and TTD chairman Bhumana Karunakar Reddy.

He addressed a meeting held at SV University auditorium here on Thursday, to present awards to volunteers in recognition of their services. Bhumana said volunteers’ role is key in taking welfare schemes to the people to make YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as Chief Minister of the State again.

Expressing his sincere appreciation to volunteers, he said the government committed to the welfare of the volunteers and their services are invaluable. He further said it was the volunteers, who saw that people avail Rs 3.5 crore direct benefits (DBT) amount in their accounts towards various schemes like pensions. However, he said some people were unable to digest the success of volunteer system introduced by CM Jagan Mohan Reddy and throwing mud on them (volunteers) and portraying them as anti-social elements which is not correct.
