Education Only Solution to Eradicate Poverty, Says Andhra CM Jagan Reddy


Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy stated that training is the one answer for poverty and it’s an asset given to future generations.

The Chief Minister launched the second tranche of the Jagananna Vidya Deevena scheme of Rs 693.81 crore instantly crediting it into the mom’s accounts of 10.97 lakh college students pursuing their greater research.

Speaking on this event, the Chief Minister stated that the State authorities had spent Rs 5,573 crore for the price reimbursement by means of the Vidya Deevena scheme since 2019, in addition to clearing Rs 1,880 crore pending dues of the earlier authorities throughout 2018-19.

He stated: “The scheme has been designed to make training accessible to the poor, creating a possibility for these college students who wish to pursue greater training with out burdening their households. The actual wealth which may be given to the longer term technology is training, which alone can eradicate poverty and alter their lives. It is tough to get rid of poverty if the kids don’t pursue greater research.”

Further, the Chief Minister stated that as per the 2011 census, there is 33 per cent illiteracy in Andhra Pradesh while it is 27 per cent in the country and drawing a comparison with the BRICS nations on the student’s enrollment for higher studies, it is 51.8 per cent in Brazil, 83.4 per cent in Russia, 83.4 per cent in China but in India, only 27 per cent of the students are pursuing higher education and 73 per cent are not joining colleges.

Jagan said that the State government has been very much committed to the education sector and thus rolled out schemes like Jagananna Amma Vodi, Goru Mudha, Vidya Kanuka, Vasati Deevena to ensure that no family runs into debts for the sake of providing education to their children and resolving this, the government had spent Rs 26,677 crore on education alone.

Under Jagananna Vidya Deevena, fee reimbursement will be credited into mothers’ accounts in four instalments, where the government has released the first tranche in April this year and the second on Thursday, the third in December, and the fourth tranche in February next year.
