Jagan to tour Guntur on Sept 26, 27

Written By news on Saturday, September 24, 2016 | 9/24/2016


Hyderabad, Sept 24: Leader of Opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will visit the flood affected areas in Guntur district on September 26 and 27.

Party senior leader Botsa Satyanarayana told reporters here on Saturday that the state failed to rise to the occasion in tackling the situation arising out of the heavy rains that battered the coastal districts.

‘Our Party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will visit Guntur district which bore the brunt of the fury of rains and talk to the affected people.

We also appeal to the government to take all measures and provide relief to the affected people in all the coastal districts. Severe drinking water shortage and the possibility of any outbreak of epidemic should be curtailed by setting up relief and health camps, he said.

The district administration should be alerted in taking effective steps arising out of the heavy downpour which has inundated the coastal region damaging highways and water sources.

While the state was in such disarray, Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues failed to react in the proper measure and were busy in luring Opposition MLCs in to the party fold, he said.

Government figures show that 1.18 lakh acres were affected but the actual figure could be over 3 lakh acres going by the magnitude of the rains, he said and demanded that proper compensation should be paid to the farmers for crop loss.
