Convene assembly to discuss flood relief

YSR Congress Party
honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma assured the flood victims today that
the party will take up their cause in the next assembly session and strive to
ensure that proper compensation is paid to them.

Vijayamma demanded the
Government to convene the assembly session immediately to discuss the floods
and relief measures.  

Continuing her tour of
the flood-hit areas in the state for the third day on Wednesday, Vijayamma has
visited submerged colonies and crops in Ammaji Peta, Kankipati Vari Daruvu,
Rajiv Gruhakalpa and Kummarilova areas of East Godavari district and inspected
the inundated crops and residential colonies. She later addressed flood victims
at several locations.

Vijayamma said YSRCP
would write to Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar with the details of the
crop and property loss and seeking compensation to the flood-victims.

After visiting the
flood-ravaged locations and talking to the victims on their problems, Vijayamma
slammed the Government for not initiating relief measures even after four days
of the natural calamity.

Flood victims
complained to Vijayamma that neither the local MP nor the MLA has visited them
despite the seriousness of the flood situation. “Police beat us and drove us
away when we went to meet the CM Kiran Kumar Reddy during his tour,” they told

On the instructions of
Vijayamma, YSRCP rank and file brought blankets and distributed them to the
flood victims at Kummarilova. Vijayamma later left for Payakarao Pet of
Visakhapatnam district.
