Vijayawada, Dec 6 – The Telugu Desam Party chief and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, has said that the State Government has miserably failed in providing shelter and supplying food and water to the cyclone victims.

“The Government is not prepared to prevent the damage caused by the cyclone and did not even extend any kind of assistance to the flood-hit,” Chandrababu Naidu said in a statement here on Tuesday.

When Naidu spoke to some of the Michaung flood victims over the phone to inquire about the assistance being extended to them, all the victims told him that even food was not supplied to them and that there was no response from the Government. Naidu also had a teleconference with over 12,000 party leaders and activists across the State on the impact of the cyclone and inquired about the prevailing condition in their respective areas.

The TDP national president directed the party leaders and cadre to extend all possible assistance to the cyclone victims, including supply of food and water, without waiting for any help from the Government side. “The TDP, be it in power or Opposition, always stands by the people and at this crucial juncture we all should extend help to the affected,” Naidu told the party leaders and the activists.

“When the Hud Hud cyclone hit the State ex gratia was paid by issuing the GO number 9 and during Titli storm the financial help was extended through GO number 14 thus the TDP stood by the farming community during the crisis,” Chandrababu claimed.
