HYDERABAD: The Congress has come down heavily on the Telugu Desam Party for politicising flood relief efforts.

"It is unfortunate that the TDP has chosen to find fault with the Government for not taking up relief works on a war footing when it has taken steps to rescue affected people and provide food and water," six Congress MLAs said at a press conference here on Monday.

Government Chief Whip N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and former Minister G. Muddukrishnama Naidu said: "The Chief Minister reviewed the situation soon after reports began pouring in about the imminent danger."
