Telugu Desam Polit Buro member K. Yerrannaidu alleged that Revenue Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao had failed to oversee the relief measures in the district though hundreds of people were put to hardship with the unprecedented rains.

He submitted a memorandum to the District Collector N.Srikanth urging him to release compensation immediately to the victims who had lost crops and houses. The former Union Minister asked the Telugu Desam cadre to help the needy people cutting across party lines.
