AP welfare schemes inspired by Constitution: Jagan on National Constitution Day

Vijayawada: Drawing inspiration from the Constitution, the state government has been working to ensure social justice by implementing various welfare schemes in a transparent manner, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy said on Saturday.

He along with Governor Biswa Bhushan Harichandan participated in the National Constitution Day celebrations at Tummalapalli Kalakshetram here on Saturday. They paid glowing tributes to the architect of the Constitution, Dr. BR Ambedkar.

Addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister said the Indian Constitution was drafted by Dr. Ambedkar after studying the constitutions of 80 countries. "The Constitution of India is great and it is the rule book that teaches discipline to all. Our country is mixed with many castes and religions. For 72 years, this Constitution has rewritten the history of social groups," Jagan said.




Reiterating that the Constitution stands for the downtrodden, the Chief Minister said the government is moving ahead with a number of welfare schemes to ensure that all sections are benefited in accordance with the Constitution and become a role model for other states. A 125-feet statue of Dr. BR Ambedkar will be unveiled here in April 2023, he said.

Andhra Pradesh was the first state in the country which brought revolutionary changes in the society through Grama Swarajyam and by establishing village/ward secretariats, the Chief Minister said, adding that around 50% of the nominated posts were designated for BCs, SCs, STs, and minorities.

Highlighting the welfare schemes, he said the government is also giving away house titles to women and trying to eliminate discrimination through development and many welfare schemes. Around 70% of the council of ministers are BCs, SCs, STs, and minorities. A BC leader was appointed as Speaker, an SC as the chairman of the council, and a minority person as deputy chairperson of the council, Jagan said.

Meanwhile, at the YSRCP Central office (Tadepalli), ministers Adimulapu Suresh and Ch. Venu Gopala Krishna, Bapatla MP Nandigam Suresh, MLCs L. Appi Reddy, Janga Krishna Murthy, and Jupudi Prabhakar also participated in the National Constitution Day celebrations and paid tributes to Dr. Ambedkar.
