Vijayawada, Nov 29 : Telugu Desam Party National President and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday presided over the party strategy committee meeting when they resolved to fight a relentless struggle till justice would be done to the victims of recent cyclone and floods in Rayalaseema and Nellore districts.

The TDP expressed concern that the cyclone relief had not yet reached the families and the farmers who suffered severe crop and property losses.

It was ‘sheer inefficiency’ on the part of Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy to say that field level visits would hamper the relief and rescue activities in the flood hit areas.

The TDP leaders demanded a ‘judicial enquiry’ into the miserable failure of the YCP Government in flood management, which caused havoc. All the deaths in the cyclone hit areas should be treated as the Government murders. The input subsidy given to farmers in the TDP rule was not reduced. Over Rs. 1,100 Cr of disaster management funds were diverted without paying anything to the flood victims.

The Telugu Desam accused Jagan Reddy of betraying the farmers by not paying premium towards crop insurance. The flood-hit farmers were now not able to get insurance since the State Government had not paid its share which resulted in denial of the Central share as well. In the 2020 floods also, the Jagan regime did not pay a premium but told falsehoods in the Assembly that it had made the payments. Field level surveys would be held on non-payment of crop insurance premiums.

The TDP leaders demanded that the YCP regime withdraw its proposal to collect Rs 14,261 Cr from the poor families in the name of one time settlement (OTS). The YCP Government was illogical and atrocious as it proposed to collect OTS for houses built from 1983 to 2017. The poor families were being forced to pay this though the officials were describing it as not mandatory. The TDP would provide free registrations the moment it comes to power.

The TDP said Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy has turned the Assembly into a ‘Kuru Sabha’ which had no respect for women. The TDP would conduct ‘Gaurava Sabha’ meetings (honour) in all villages and towns to expose the YSRCP’s disrespect for women. The CFMS system was being misused. The Jagan Reddy headed government diverted the panchayat funds given under the 15th Finance Commission. All these funds should be deposited back into the respective accounts of the panchayat immediately.
