HYDERABAD: BJP State president G Kishan Reddy launched the ‘Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Padakam’ and ‘Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana’ programmes in his Amberpet Assembly constituency on Sunday.

After the launch, Kishan Reddy said the first scheme is aimed at providing life security to any individual who pays `330 per month. Similarly, the latter scheme offers `2 lakh security cover to individuals in the event of any medical emergency. He appealed to bankers to take proactive measures in spreading awareness about the schemes.

Meanwhile, alleging that the Congress had never stood by the farmers when it was in power, BJP Kisan Morcha national general secretary P Sugunakar Rao said the Congress was unable to digest the fact that it was now out of power. Speaking to media persons here on Sunday, he said the Congress was making desperate attempts to make itself relevant in contemporary politics.

“The Congress is restless being out of power,” he alleged. When in power, the party had always restored to ‘land grabbing’ in the form of special economic zones (SEZs), leaving farmers high and dry, he said.
