YSRCP to pressurize Govt to announce flood relief

Khammam, Nov 8, 2012: Lashing out at Kiran Kumar Reddy Government for its failure to tackle the Nilam cyclone and the resultant flood, YSR Congress Party honourary president Smt. Y. S. Vijayamma today asked the Government to learn lessons at least now.

Speaking to farmers at Tirumalaya Palem in Khammam district after inspecting the flooded cotton and tobacco fields and chilli crops in and around the village, Vijayamma asked the Government to pay proper compensation immediately for the affected farmers.

Vijayamma was on a one-day tour of the flood affected areas and inundated crops in Khammam district.

Reacting to the reports that 2,31,966 acres of cotton crop has been destroyed in the recent Nilam cyclone,Vijayamma said people can’t live if there is no agriculture and if there are no farmers. “We can’t survive without farmers,” she said and asked the Government to announce a financial package immediately.

She assured the farmers YSRCP would bring pressure on the Government to ensure proper compensation is paid to the farmers who have lost their crops.

Vijayamma asked Chief Minister Kirankumar Reddy to react and announce compensation for the farmers immediately without waiting for Central teams to visit the state. She will visit the flood-ravaged villages in Paleru, Khammam, Vyra, Sattupally and Aswarao Pet constituencies in the district and meet the flood victims.

Party leaders Bajireddy Govardhan, Gattu Ramachandra Rao, Mahendar Reddy and Vijaya Reddy have accompanied Vijayamma when she arrived at Khammam by Krishna Express earlier in the day.
