Jagan to tour cyclone affected areas

Oct 13: YSR Congress Party President and Leader of Opposition, YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy will tour the Hudhud Cyclone ravaged areas of north coastal Andhra from
Tuesday and oversee the relief and rehabilitation works and has postponed the
October 16 State-wide protest programme owing to the natural calamity. 

“YS Jagan
Mohan Reddy will leave for Rajahmundry tomorrow and reach Vizag in whatever
mode of transport that is available and tour the battered Visakhapatnam,
Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts. He will stay put there to oversee the
relief and rehabilitation works, meet the affected families and help them get
faster relief,” party senior leader Dharmana Prasada Rao told reporters here on

As the
Hudhud Cyclone has left a trail of destruction, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has called
up on the party cadre to connect with the people and help them in getting
faster aid. Farmers, weavers, small and petty business establishments and other
sections have been badly affected as Visakhapatnam has bore the brunt of the
cyclone which crossed the coast on Sunday.

The local
leaders will organize the tour programme of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy from Vizag and
upwards and this tour will in no way affect the government’s operations. On the
other hand, his tour will help the affected people to get the aid quicker, he

asked if he will meet the Prime Minister, who is scheduled to tour the area,
Prasada Rao said: “it depends on the situation but our mission is to lend a
helping hand to the needy in the cyclone ravaged region.

Due to
the cyclonic storm, the proposed protest programme of the Party against the
loan waiver by the TDP government stands postponed, he added.
