Monday, February 12, 2018

AgriGold Customers and Agents’ Welfare Association president M.Nageswara Rao said that the State government has issued a GO today facilitating payment of Rs.5 lakh each to the victims of AgriGold scam who died of stress and depression.

Speaking to media persons here, he said though the Chief Minister has instructed the officials to initiate payment of compensation following a decision in the Cabinet meeting held on February 2, the officers did not evince interest in releasing the GO immediately.

On Special Category Status, he said the Pratyeka Hoda Sadhana Samithi would convene a round-table on February 18 in Vijayawada under the leadership of Chalasani Srinivas and chalk out an action plan to press for the demands which the Central government was obliged to concede in compliance with the AP Reorganization Act.
