"To gain people's confidence over the government, the Chief Minister said the programmes of the government should be implemented without being indifferent. Successful implementation of these programme would eradicate poverty," Rao said.

In order to implement several development programmes in the fisheries, there is a need for the establishment of a corporation or federation. He said castes such as Boya and Kuruma are also dependent on fisheries like the Gangaputra and Mudiraj communities.

He said that in the entire state, there are about three to four lakh Yadav families who are living on sheep rearing and the government is ready to support them. He wanted the officials concerned to identify suitable lands on Krishna and Godavari River Basin to set up Colleges for Fisheries.
