her recently operated leg, interacted with locals at the Rachchabanda

“Farmers are already in
a debt trap due to the Government’s incoherent policies and drought conditions.
Government’s inability to handle the power crisis has added to their woes,”
Smt. Sharmila told the gathering, adding that CM Kiran Kumar has no idea of
reservoir levels and storage of water.

She said majority
states have been facing the power problem but many of them are taking
preventive steps to ease the situation and lesson the power woes by buying
power from neighboring states.

“YSR used to have the
details of power generation on finger tips and ensured uninterrupted power
supply by initiating corrective measures.  But Kiran Kumar is always busy trying to protect
his chair,” she said and added that the Government is well protected by TDP
president Chandrababu Naidu.
