Chandrababu Naidu urges fishermen to restore full fishing rights.

Mangalagiri: Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday urged Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to withdraw GO 217 and restore full right to fishermen societies across the state to catch fish on tanks, canals and reservoirs. The financial situation was in danger. Those dependent on long-running community businesses were losing their livelihood. In a letter to the Chief Minister, Naidu stressed the need to provide financial assistance to the backward classes who were running their livelihood on the basis of community businesses and handicrafts.

TDP The chief lamented that the BC sub-plan had been diluted and BC removed from all decision-making platforms in the government. This was in stark contrast to how BC had been involved in all decisions since 1983. In the previous government, subsidized loans were given to millions of BC youth through corporations and associations. Under the sub-plan, priority was given to BC development and welfare. 

Alleging a crude deal with the BC communities, Naidu said his party would strongly oppose GO 217 as it was aimed at jeopardizing the existence of the fishing profession. They lost their positions of leadership in local bodies by 16,800 BC after reducing the state from 34 per cent to 24 per cent. The government was campaigning a lot on corporations that had no money and no duties. Not a single rupee of money or loan was given to these corporations or associations in the last two and a half years.
