NELLORE: Lauding Union Urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu for his initiation in expanding the services of Swarna Bharath Trust (SBT) to various sectors, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu called upon Non-Governmental Organisations like SBT to come forward for extending support to the government and be part of the development as it will be a mammoth task for the government to overcome the problems on its own.
Addressing a meeting while participating in the 13th anniversary of SBT established by Venkaiah Naidu’s daughter Deepa Venkat at Venkatachalam on Sunday, CM said that the NGO concept is already existing in foreign countries and millionaires and several organisations are spending 60 per cent of their earnings for social service.
He recalled that 13 years ago when the SBT was established in a small remote village Venkatachalam, he never expected that it would grow to such an extent. At present, the SBT is playing a crucial role in eradicating rural poverty by introducing several employment generation concepts including Internet technology, training programmes for farmers over the latest technologies.
Chandrababu Naidu said that it is a proud moment for him to participate in the SBT anniversary and expressed his surprise over the success of government concepts like Palle Pilustondi, Polam Pilustondi, Pedarikam Gelupu and others being effectively implemented by the SBT under different names.
The CM said that it is possible for him to make AP as one of the 10 developed states in the country, despite several hurdles from all fronts.
