Stop aerial surveys, jump into action: CCP tells Jagan

Vijayawada: The Andhra Pradesh Congressional Committee advised Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy not to waste time on aerial surveys, but to take personal action to help those affected by flooding in Rayalaseema.

CPC Chairman Dr Sake Sailajanath, in a statement released Sunday by Andhra Ratna Bhavan, recalled that during the reign of Congress earlier, the Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues participated in relief and rehabilitation programs during flooding in Kurnool district.

Welcoming AICC leader Rahul Gandhi’s reaction to the state flooding, he said congressional leaders have been invited to participate in relief programs. He said the material and human losses in the state due to the flooding were painful.

Yet hundreds of villages have been abandoned and roads have been severely damaged, disrupting communications with villages. Jagan Mohan Reddy, who visited flood-affected areas when he was in opposition, does not visit affected villages as chief minister, he criticized.

CCP leader expressed condolences to family members of Virupaksha farmer who died of heart attack after witnessing destruction of his crop in Sridharagutta village in Bommanahalli mandal in Anantapuram district . The farmer cultivated paddy on 15 acres, of which the 12 acres were rented.

The government should come forward to help these farmers in times of distress, he asked.
