Our government will cleanse system inside out 

Amaravathi: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy set the tone for the new government under his leadership by announcing some key welfare and revolutionary governance measures immediately after taking the oath of office on Thursday.
YS Jagan as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh first gave his assent on a file hiking the existing pension given to old age persons to Rs 2,250 a month. The old-age pension henceforth will be called as YSR Old Age Pension. With each passing year, the pension amount will see an increase of Rs 250. This decision of YS Jagan indicated that welfare will be at the top of his agenda in governance.
The newly sworn-in Chief Minister said his government would fill up four lakh village volunteer positions by August 15, and 1.60 lakh vacancies in Grama Secretariats, which will become the nodal point for administration in villages, by October 2, Gandhi Jayanthi.
Keeping in line with his promise of “revolutionary changes” in the governance, YS Jagan asserted that his government would not tolerate corruption at any cost. Therefore, a call centre will be set up by August 15 linking directly with the Chief Minister’s Office to allow anyone from across the State to lodge their complaints.
YS Jagan reiterated that the new government would cleanse the system inside out to make transparency a definitive priority. If irregularities were found, he said the government would call for reverse tendering.
To maintain high levels of transparency, he said the government would appoint a judicial commission to overlook the process of awarding new contracts. YS Jagan will call on the High Court Chief Justice to this effect on Friday.
