We saw the devastation caused by Hudhud in Visakhapatnam and Uttara Andhra. We cannot measure the loss it meant to lakhs of our brothers and sisters. Government will do everything it can. All of us should also contribute in the relief and rebuilding efforts. While Government focuses on providing advance warnings and relief, effective long term rehabilitation for the families is much more difficult.
In 2009, during the floods in river Krishna, Loksatta Party had adopted select villages in Kurnool, Mehboobnagar, Krishna and Guntur and implemented projects in consultation with local residents that contributed to long term rehabilitation that you can see even today - thousands of families found livelihood.
We would like to do the same again, now. Whatever we do now must have an impact for a long term.
I appeal to everyone to donate to Loksatta Flood Relief fund to help put long terms solutions in place. I assure you that every rupee donated will be put to good use and will reach those affected.
I express my deep sympathy to all those effected by Hudhud and on behalf of everyone at Loksatta Party, we will stand by you and support you in every possible way.
