Vijayamma lashes out at Government’s inaction - Sakshi Post

YSR Congress Party honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma today found fault with the Government for its lackadaisical approach in undertaking rehabilitation measures in the flood affected areas.

Speaking to media persons here after visiting several submerged areas and crops in and around Eluru, Vijayamma said CM Kiran Kumar and other ministers considered their visits to Delhi as more important than to attend to the
flood victims.
“There is no response from the Government at all to the flood till now. Despite the weather department’s warnings,the Government totally failed to anticipate the seriousness of the situation and come to the rescue of the people to reduce the loss of lives and property,” she lamented.
Flaying the Government’s negligence towards the construction of the Tammileru Protection Wall, Vijayamma said an amount of Rs.19 Cr was released by YSR for the purpose. “Acting on representations, YSR sanctioned Rs.28 Cr for the second time but the amount has not yet been released by the Kiran Kumar Reddy Government,” she said.
Assuring people proper steps would be taken to complete the construction of Protection Wall when YSRCP comes to power, Vijayamma asked the Government to take up immediate measures to help the flood victims and to compensate for the losses suffered by people.
Vijayamma said YSR Congress Party would put pressure on the Government to ensure proper compensation is paid to the flood victims. “We will stand by you. Our party leaders and activists will participate in the rehabilitation activities,” she assured the flood victims.
