Addressing media at Muthukuru on Monday, he said 17,750 families were getting Rs 25,000 and other 3,350 families would be benefitted from the package with Rs 10,650.

He said Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy was transferring the assured amount of Rs 35.74 crore to the bank accounts of beneficiaries directly. This is an assurance made in 2019 and now the state government was fulfilling it now. He reminded that former CM Dr YS Rajasekhar Reddy assured the port and sanctioned it. He subsequently allocated Rs 32 crore as a package under R&R for fishermen of four villages. The non-fishermen package was also provided to around 2,000 families too.
