Vijayawada: Flipkart delegation led by its CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy met Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy and discussed various issues like investment opportunities in the state, ensuring better prices for farmers, and skill development.

During the meeting held at the camp office here on Thursday, the Chief Minister explained to Mr. Krishnamurthy that the Rythu Bharosa Kendras (RBKs) launched in the state will be a revolutionary move. The RBKs will continue to be the backbone for the farmers from providing seeds to purchasing their crops, Jagan said.

He appealed to the Flipkart CEO to help farmers get better prices for their crops and make available better technology for them. He said the CMAPP has been monitoring prices regularly and asked Flipkart to provide adequate support to improve it further.

Mr. Krishnamurthy said they will take appropriate steps to procure products from farmers for their commodities and it will benefit both parties. He said they would do their best in providing better technology to the farmers.

Jagan said Visakhapatnam is a good place for IT and e-commerce investments in the state and invited Flipkart to invest in the city. He said the state government is setting up a high-end skill university in Visakhapatnam to enhance the skills of the youth and asked Flipkart to become a partner.

The Flipkart CEO responded positively to the proposals and said the company is already active in Vishakapatnam. Stating that the company will invest more in the city he said they will partner with the state government in skill development activities and added that those programmes will start from the following year.

The Chief Minister urged the Flipkart CEO to help increase the export business of fisheries. Mr. Krishnamurthy said their partner Wal-Mart has been buying and exporting seafood products from the state and assured that they would help increase the business.

Flipkart CCO Rajneesh Kumar and Chief Minister's secretary Solomon Arokia Raj were present at the meeting.
