Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan has found fault with YSR Congress party leaders, particularly ministers, for their alleged over-enthusiasm on the submergence of Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu’s residence on the Krishna river bund.
“It is really unfortunate that the ministers and YSRC leaders are making rounds to Krishna river bund (to prove Naidu’s residence as illegal), when the people of low lying areas in Vijayawada along the river course were suffering from submergence of their houses,” Pawan said on Saturday in a statement.
He said it was the responsibility of the government to shift the affected people to safety.
“Instead, they are more interested in flying drones to see whether the constructions on the river bund are getting submerged or not,” he said.
Pawan pointed out that it was not just Chandrababu Naidu’s residence, but there were many other constructions on the bund, including nature cure hospital of Manthena Satyanarayana Raju, former BJP MP Gokaraju Ganga Raju’s house where BJP president Amit Shah had visited in the past, Sarada Peetham ashramam which was visited by two Telugu chief ministers.
“If there is a flood, all of them will get submerged. Why should the YSRC leaders focus only on Naidu’s house by flying drones over it?” he asked.
The Jana Sena Party said the YSRC had got a huge mandate with 151 assembly seats. It should behave in a responsible and dignified way, rather than doing drone politics over floods.
