Naidu insensitive to tsunami-hit: Congress

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, DEC. 28. The TDP president, N. Chandrababu Naidu's alleged participation in a procession on his way to Machilipatnam in Krishna district where he would visit tsunami victims has drawn flak from the Congress Legislature Party.

Stepping up its offensive, the CLP on Tuesday produced photographs of the Leader of the Opposition going in a convoy of four-wheelers and two-wheelers from the Gannavaram airport to Machilipatnam to see the bodies of the victims.

"Why `V' sign?"

The Minister for Panchayat Raj, J. C. Diwakar Reddy, and the Agriculture Minister, N. Raghuveera Reddy, along with other CLP members expressed shock at Mr. Naidu flashing the `V" sign to the waiting crowd at Machilipatnam. The insensitivity of the TDP leader and cadres was evident when they came in a procession carrying party flags, sporting yellow shirts and hailing Mr. Naidu, they said.

"Does the occasion warrant such a show of strength," they questioned decrying Mr. Naidu's actions during his two-day tour of affected areas.

Mr. Diwakar Reddy, who was camping in Machilipatnam after the tragedy, said belligerent TDP workers, prevented the family members of three victims from Ponnur from shifting the bodies. "They literally forced the bereaved families to wait till Mr. Naidu arrived," he pointed out.
