CM directs official to evolve plan to construct 12 jetties

Amaravati, Sep 20 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy directed the officials concerned to evolve an action plan to complete the construction of jetties in a specific time frame in the state.
The Chief Minister said that the Government is firm to develop three sea ports in the state and develop the Machillipatnam sea port as a major port.
Plans are being formulated to construct 12 jetties across the State, including one at Manchineella Peta in Srikakulam district.
Mr Reddy held a review meeting with the officials of Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Department here on Friday.
Speaking on the occasion, he said that the government should build jetties and fishing harbours where fishermen are seeking them. He also discussed on construction of fishing harbour near Bhimili.
The authorities brought to the notice of the Chief Minister that there are about 25,000 Telugu fishing families in Gujarat, who are unemployed and migrated.
The authorities said that they would be able to bring them back to the state by providing them with necessary facilities for fishing.
The Chief Minister told the officials to take necessary action for providing opportunities to the migrated families and stressed on transparency and corruption free governance in the works.
“Steps should be taken to set up workshops by January to educate aqua farmers on fish and prawns. Seed and feeds must be of quality. There should be no adulteration anywhere. Employees of Village Secretariats in aqua regions are from respective aqua fields. It is the responsibility of the authorities to provide them with proper training and ensure the well-being of the farmers” he said.
The previous TDP government gave permission to set up Pharma Companies in the hatchery zones in East Godavari district. “Pharma companies are polluting the sea in this zone and once an area is declared as hatchery zone, no other industries should be given permission in that area in order to keep it free from pollution, the Chief Minister said and asked the officials to focus on providing Minimum Support Price to Acqua farmers.
Mr Reddy said livestock also should be given vaccines on regular basis.
He said the government would set up a breeding centre in Pulivendula in Kadapa district to develop Murra buffaloes and Punganuru breed cows.
