Communist Party of India (CPI) State secretary K. Ramakrishna on Tuesday alleged that the Andhra Pradesh government lagged behind its Telangana counterpart when it came to response to the flood situation in the Godavari delta and relief operations.

Addressing the party leaders at the 25 th District Maha Sabha here, Mr. Ramakrishna said that Telangana had announced a financial aid of ₹10,000 each to the affected family, while Andhra Pradesh gave only ₹2,000 each to the victims.

Mr. Ramakrishna alleged that the Centre was not extending the required support to complete the Polavaram irrigation project and the delay was submerging the areas in both the Telugu States.

Referring to liquor business, Mr. Ramakrishna said that State government was targeting to generate ₹20,000 crore annually.

He also appealed to launch a joint fight against the BJP at the Centre to ‘protect the country from the hazardous policies’. CPI East Godavari district president Thatipaka Madhu and senior leaders were present on the occasion.
