Support Government in Extending relief: Dr. JP

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today appealed to all parties and organizations to extend moral, material and human support to the Government in undertaking rescue and relief operations and mitigating people’s suffering in the wake of the cyclone.

Dr. JP, now on a tour of the U.S., said in a message that Andhra Pradesh has unfortunately been battered by one natural calamity or the other beginning with prolonged drought to unprecedented floods and severe cyclone now in the last one year. It is time that every one transcended politics and went to the rescue of people threatened by the cyclone.

Dr. JP congratulated the State and Union Governments on working closely and effectively in addressing the cyclone threat.

Dr. JP recalled that successive Governments have mostly focused on short-term measures in the wake of a natural calamity and asked the Rosaiah Government to give up ad hocism and take up long-term measures to preempt losses in future.
