The farming community was highly disappointed by Chief Minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy when he visited Krishna district on Saturday. Mr. Reddy, who arrived here two hours behind schedule to take part in Rachabanda programme, devoted most of his time on Samaikyandhra agitation. He briefly touched upon the aspects of Rachabanda and its success during first two spells. Mr. Reddy, however, did not say anything about losses, more particularly crop loss, suffered due to Phailin cyclone.

This is second time that the Chief Minister skipped the issue after heavy rains following Phailin cyclone hit the district. Couple of weeks ago, he stopped at Gannavaram airport near Vijayawada wherein the district administration arranged a photo exhibition.

During his brief halt at the airport, Mr. Reddy did not make any comments though the local elected representatives expected release of some funds to take up restoration and repair works.
