VISAKHAPATNAM: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu today said the state government would take all steps to improve living conditions of farmers by making the agriculture sector profitable.

While interacting with farmers at Tummapala and Gandavaram villages under Anakapalle region during his visit to Vizag, he said that he would strive hard to improve living conditions of the farmers in the state.

He said that all government schemes would be linked to mobile phones of beneficiaries of various schemes so they could get their money through a technique which would be as simple as recharging talk time of their phones.

"I will bring technology to farmers and poor students.

Technology will revolutionise farming in the state, which will benefit the farmers. My only aim is to make farming profitable," he said.

Later, at a public meeting, Naidu launched an initiative where local officials and people's representatives including the area's MLA would tour two villages on Tuesday and Wednesday in a week and explain the latest trends of farming and other schemes to farmers to improve farm productivity.

Naidu said that he himself would tour all 13 districts of the state before the kharif season ended.
