Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Governor ESL Narasimhan on Monday said 'Samaja Vikasam-Kutumba Vikasam' is the new motto of the government to make the state number one in the country by 2022.

Addressing a joint session of the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council in the new Assembly building at Velagapudi in Amaravati, Narasimhan said 11.06am of the day is going to remain a golden moment in the history of Andhra Pradesh as the legislature began its functioning from its own capital.

Listing out the achievements of the government in the past two-and-a-half years after the bifurcation, Governor said state is fast progressing to achieve a double-digit growth.

Here are the future plans of the government to achieve its goal of Samja Vikasam-Kutumba Vikasam:

AP contributes 70 percent in the country's aqua sector and forms 45 percent of the entire food sector providing employment to 14.5 lakh people. AP will be developed into an aqua hub of the country.

Government is striving to develop a conducive atmosphere to investments in food processing, textiles, electronics hardware, automobiles, aerospace, defence, tourism and other sectors not only to encourage upcoming entrepreneurs but also to attract large scale investments from outside the state and country.

An authority for the development of micro, small and medium scale enterprises will be established. The MSME Authority will support MSME units in monitory terms to revive them.

Tirupati, Srisailam, Srikalahasti, Kadapa Dargah, Mahanandi, Simhachalam, Annavaram and Vijayawada will be developed as a spiritual conduit.

AP e-Knowledge Exchange will be established to develop the state into a knowledge hub through implementation of digital classroom, biometric attendance system and containing dropouts rate in schools.

The government's functioning will be based on seven missions, five grids and five channels of campaigns. Polavaram project will be completed by 2019 and from 2018 water will be released through gravity.
