Officials informed the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy that the Aqua hubs and spokes shall provide employment to roughly 80,000 individuals directly and indirectly.

Chief Minister stated that infrastructure development projects should be made available to farmers and agriculture-related industries as quickly as possible in order to provide farmers with additional revenue.

He said change must be felt on the ground. He said all constructions including warehouses should be built as quickly as possible. By next year, he added, a natural custom hiring center for organic farming should be established at every RBK level. He urged authorities to raise awareness among farmers about it.
