ANI Photo | “What happened in Telangana will repeat in Andhra Pradesh after three months”: Chandrababu Naidu

Accusing the Andhra Pradesh government of failing to take adequate precautionary measures for cyclone Michaung, TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday said the Jagan Mohan Reddy-led government will lose the assembly polls in the state like the BRS government in the neighbouring Telangana.
“What happened in Telangana will repeat in Andhra Pradesh after three months,” Chandrababu Naidu said here after visiting cyclone-affected areas in the district.
Naidu criticized the Andhra Pradesh government for its “failure in preventing damage due to Cyclone Michaung”.
Addressing the public in Tenali Assembly Constituency, Naidu said that farmers have incurred complete losses, while tenant farmers are facing dire situations. He emphasized that his visit aims to investigate problems at the ground level and exert pressure on the state government for justice.
Naidu said that the damage from Cyclone Michaung exceeded previous cyclones, stressing that ready-for-harvest crops were damaged. When the government failed to provide irrigation water, farmers used their funds for tanker water, but 90% of the crops drowned in rainwater, he claimed.
Naidu alleged that the state government failed in disaster management and neglected precautionary measures.
Despite technological capabilities providing data on cyclone movement and rainfall, the government did not take adequate action for farmers, said Naidu. He said that the state government neglected the drainage systems over the past 4.5 years, resulting in drainage water flowing into farmlands.
The TDP Chief criticized the Jagan government for not implementing the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana, which was used to compensate farmers for damaged crops. Currently, only 16 farmers with 0.4 hectares of land receive this benefit. He slammed Jagan Reddy for visiting affected areas only after seeing Chandrababu Naidu’s schedule.
Stating that in his 45 years of political journey, he has made no mistakes or irregularities, Naidu said that the Jagan government falsely imprisoned him to intimidate those questioning the government
