A Lok Satta Party team from the headquarters is leaving for Prakasam district tomorrow to study the havoc caused by Cyclone Laila and evaluate how it could go to the rescue of victims.

 

Announcing this at a media conference, party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao, V. Laxman Balaji and V. Vijayender Reddy said that the party leaders planned to visit Addanki, Chirala and Ongole. A local Lok Satta Party is already engaged in distributing food packets and medicines in Ongole and coordinating with officials in ensuring that relief reached all sufferers.

 

The Lok Satta leaders congratulated the State Government on the alacrity with which it took precautionary measures and wanted it to display the same alacrity in extending relief and attending to rehabilitation. It should go to the assistance of farmers who had lost their produce, and fishermen who had lost their fishing gear. It should take steps for the purchase of paddy damaged by rain and floods.

 

The Lok Satta leaders hoped that the Government of India, unlike in the past, would extend liberal assistance promptly.
