Anna Canteens during Chandrababu‘s regime used to feed Lakhs of the poor for Just 5 Rupees a meal. After coming to power, Jagan stalled the scheme and closed them.
Palakollu MLA Nimmala Ramanaidu is continuing one such canteen even after the elections with the donations. But the remaining canteens got closed everywhere.
USA NTR fans have come forward to bring back at least one Anna Canteen on the occasion of NTR’s Jayanthi.
The canteen which will be operational in Guntur is named ‘Anna’ Poorna and will be unveiled by Balakrishna himself on 28th May.
They have embarked on this idea on the occasion of the NTR Jayanthi centenary celebrations.
It will serve tasty and hygienic food for the poor for just five rupees on the lines of Anna canteen.
Fans will themselves fund this scheme and the plan is to feed at least 1000 people per day.
Annapurna canteen will be operational round the year.
