It came after the last government headed by Chandrababu Naidu in November last year revoked its consent to Central Bureau of Investigation to conduct raids without its permission.
The move was then seen as in the wake of the agency losing its credibility. As per the government officials of the Home Ministry of the state, the general consent is given routinely for the period of six months to a year. The last consent was given on August 3, 2018.
General Consent is the periodic approval by the state government to the CBI and other agencies under Delhi Special Police Establishment, 1946.
Apart from newly appointed CM Jagan Mohan Reddy also announced to increase the salaries of Asha workers in medical and health department from existing Rs 3,000 to Rs 10,000.
In a series of Tweet YSRCP Rajya Sabha MP Vijaysai Reddy also said that his government in the state will bring changes in Education System. ‘No Bags on Saturday, Games and mental development programs will be conducted in school’.
