‘The photo expo on cyclone will help the public understand the damage done to Northern Andhra’

On grievance day, Krishna district Collector M. Raghunandan Rao and other staff of the Collectorate on Monday had a glimpse of cyclone Hudhud during the special exhibition conducted by the department of Information and Public Relations here.

Public from all walks of life and farmers who turned out to the Collectorate to get their problems and issues addressed at the grievance cell spent time at the photo exhibition that chronicled the lives of those affected by the cyclone Hudhud in Northern Andhra Pradesh.

“Displaying the collection of pictures on the Hudhud cyclone that wrecked the city of destiny Visakhapatnam and its beauty will help the public understand the damage done to Northern Andhra,” said Krishna District Information and Public Relations Officer Mr. Sada Rao.

Many farmers at the Collectorate remained voiceless when they saw the pictures of the collapse of the agriculture fields and life of fisherfolk. Heart rending scenes of the local communities affected by the cyclone were drawing the attention from the visitors who expressed their willingness to contribute their share towards the Chief Minister Relief Fund (CMRF). The officials also scheduled to conduct the photo exhibition at the Krishna University on Tuesday and other places in the district to raise fund for the CMRF.
