Why Centre Unhappy With ‘Jagananna’ Schemes!

The government of India found fault with the YCP government for relabelling the centrally sponsored schemes. Escalating a serious objection, the government of India asked the YCP government to explain its stand on renaming schemes and mismanagement of funds.

Going into details, the government of India sponsored schemes such as Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS), Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) and Poshan Abhiyaan are rebadged by the YCP government as ‘Jagan Anna Goru Muddha’ ‘Jagan Anna Paalavelluva’ and ‘YSR Sampoorna Poshana.’

For the year 2021-22, the YCP Sarkar received Rs 187 crore from the government of India under ICPS and ICDS schemes. But the YCP government did not submit the transaction details of these funds and so the Centre enquired about it. Regarding the same, the Secretary to the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development had written to AP state’s Women and Child Development department secretary.

Well it was YCP rebel MP Raghu Ramakrishna Raju who is behind this. He lodged a complaint with Union Minister Smriti Irani against YCP government on renaming of centrally sponsored schemes.
