Telugu Desam criticises YSR's visit to Delhi

Special Correspondent

Accuses him of staying away when problems are at peak

HYDERABAD: The Telugu Desam Party has criticised Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy's New Delhi visit, saying he chose to stay away from the State when it was plagued with several problems.

Speaking to reporters, TDP leaders M. V. Mysoora Reddy and N. Rajakumari said there was a looming threat of APSRTC strike, floods and hunger-strike of Mudragada Padmanabham, which needed Dr. Reddy's attention. But, he made it a point to visit Delhi frequently to remain in the good books of the party high command.

Flood relief

Had his visit been to seek assistance for flood relief measures, as was claimed, the TDP would have wholeheartedly supported it. This was, however, not the case, as the visit was a political mission.

Dr. Mysoora Reddy criticised the Government for ignoring the heavy rain warning and not taking preventive steps. It had not even set up health camps or taken up supply of drinking water in flood-ravaged areas. Breaches to reservoirs and tanks went unattended.

`Centre indifferent'

He said the Centre was indifferent to devastation caused by floods.

The TDP extended its support to the six-day hunger strike of Mr. Padmanabham and expressed concern over his health. A party delegation will shortly call on him.
