Residents of 59{+t}{+h}Division, under the aegis of Communist Party of India (M) staged a dharna at Kandrika on Thursday, demanding immediate help to flood victims.

The residents alleged that the local public representatives were not responding though the flood victims complained over the poor help from the Government even after two months after the ‘Nilam Cyclone’.

Party Ajitsingh Nagar secretary D. Vishnu, P. Venkata Reddy, C. Narasimha Rao and others participated in the dharna along with the residents. The residents had staged a sit-in in the Rural MRO’s office last week on the issue.
