Kadapa: Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy, during his visit to Kadapa, extended financial assistance to two families. He promised financial assistance for the treatment of a farmer from Anantapur and two children from Pulivendula.

Jaganmohan Reddy, a farmer from Gugudu village under Narpala mandal in Anantapur district, submitted an appeal to the Chief Minister stating he was suffering from brain tumour. In the application, his wife Siva Jyothi said her husband was undergoing treatment at Aster CMI Hospital, Bangalore since 12 November. Doctors estimate the treatment will cost Rs. 20 lakhs.

After talking to them, the Chief Minister assured them that Rs. 2 lakhs will be immediately deposited into their account and the entire cost will be borne by the government.

In another case, K. Sivakumar of Pulivendula, a tailor, and his wife G. Varalakshi, a housewife, live with their two children Haindav (8) and Kushal (5). The two children are suffering from severe anaemia and are being given injections. In his appeal, Siva Kumar informed the Chief Minister that they have consulted doctors in Chennai and Bangalore for better treatment.

At present, the treatment is not covered under the Aarogyasri scheme and is being treated by an American oncologist in Hyderabad. The couple said they have spent around Rs. 15 lakhs for their children's treatment and now are not in a position to proceed further. Responding to Sivakumar's plea, the Chief Minister promised financial aid for the better treatment of the children.
