The cash-strapped Andhra Pradesh government is taking a back route to cut down the expenses of the social welfare scheme.
The government is adding more riders to the schemes so that the number of beneficiaries comes down.
For Rythu Bharosa, the beneficiaries were cut down by 2.7 Lakhs this year when compared to last year.
In the Opposition, Jagan promised 12,000 Rupees per annum to the farmers. But then, the quantum was reduced to 7,500 Rupees.
Jagan Government has added Rs. 6000/- is contributed by the Central Government under the PM Kisan Scheme and is claiming to give 13,500 Rupees to the farmers.
Already the burden is significantly reduced with this move and it is being decreased further with new rules every year.
Also, very few tenant farmers are receiving help from this scheme.
This is the case with all the welfare schemes. The schemes are running but the beneficiaries are being cut down for one reason or the other to decrease the funds needed for each scheme.
