NELLORE: Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has directed the officials to create confidence among the people over the government.

He directed them to permit farmers to sell their produce outside the state, if they secure better price than the MSP being provided by the government. He also directed the revenue, police and vigilance officials not to pressurise farmers so they can sell their produce, as per their wish, anywhere in the state.
