Hanamkonda: Minister for Animal Husbandry Talasani Srinivas Yadav said the TRS government is trying to strengthen rural economy by providing support to caste-based professions. He spoke to media persons after inaugurating Akhila Bharata Yadava Sangham building here on Tuesday.
He said that the government had so far distributed 70 lakh sheep to 300 lakh members of Golla and Kuruma community under subsidised sheep distribution scheme to end their migration to other areas in search of livelihood and improve their financial condition.
“The sheep scheme is proving to be a major success. In last one-and-a-half-year, the beneficiaries improved their asset base by adding another 35 lakh sheep through reproduction,” Yadav said. Referring to the Pragathi Nivedana Sabha to be held at Kongara Kalan on September 2, he said that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will herald the TRS government’s achievements that no other establishment had succeeded.
By implementing Mission Bhagiratha, 24-hour power supply, Mission Kakatiya and construction of irrigation projects etc, KCR created a history of sorts, Yadava said, appealing to people to make the Kongara Kalan meeting a huge success.
The government, which is also giving fillip to fishermen community, is releasing 81 crore fingerlings in tanks. This apart, the government is targeting distribution of 2.13 lakh milch cattle to farmers for their economic empowerment.
