Amaravati, June 22: SKOCH Group Chairman Sameer Kochhar called on Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy at the Camp Office here on Thursday and gifted a copy of his book ‘India 2047: High Income with Equity’.
Speaking on the occasion, he said that he was amazed by the kind of changes brought in by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy from the socio-economic perspective.
Stating that he has been studying Andhra Pradesh since 2005, when Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy was the Chief Minister, he said the current Chief Minister has been doing a good job in women empowerment, education, health and agriculture sectors.
The steps taken for women empowerment, Self Help Groups, livelihood linkages, health facilities and creating an entire ecosystem with the same woman being the beneficiary time and again, handholding for three to four years so that she comes out of poverty is not lip service but shows the uniqueness.
In the field of education, digitalization and coaching TOEFL early has nothing in parallel, he said.
On the agriculture front, RBKs is an initiative Andhra Pradesh has taken which others can take note of. On the medical front, running PHCs and Family Doctor concept state-wide is unique and Andhra Pradesh, under the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, is a shining example which others can emulate, he said adding that he would send a team further research.
SKOCH Group Vice Chairman, Dr Gursharan Dhanjal and Director Rohan Kochhar were also present.
