Jagan to visit flood-hit areas

The YSRCP has demanded that the State
government take immediate relief and rehabilitation measures in the three
districts that have been battered by torrential rain.

Party president and Leader of the
Opposition Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy will tour the affected areas on Monday and
tuesday. He is scheduled to visit the Rajampeta area of YSR district and will reach to Venkatagiri of Potti Sriramulu Nellore dist. He will visit Sarvepali, Sulluripeta, Atmakuru, Nellore urban, Nellore rural and Kavali areas.

The YSRCP alleged that the government had
miserably failed in handling the situation, and that it had not initiated
preventive measures in spite of the adverse weather forecast for Chittoor,
Nellore and Kadapa districts.

government had not taken measures to evacuate people from low-lying areas and
ensure storage of essential commodities,” Party leaders alleged.

Theay lamented that the government had not
submitted a report to the Centre on the drought-affected mandals in spite of
declaring 196 mandals as drought-hit and another 170 as severely affected.

“The State’s indifference in addressing the
concerns of people was evident from the statement of Union Minister Birendra
Singh who said the State was yet to submit a report on drought,” they added.
