Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu made a dramatic visit to Amravati’s cyclone-ravaged areas, unleashing scathing criticism on the state government for allegedly failing to provide adequate assistance to farmers.

Naidu, known for his fiery rhetoric, declared that “90 per cent of crops have been submerged in floodwater.” The state government failed to protect the crops and even failed to provide adequate assistance to farmers.” The TDP president accused the government of failing to build proper drainage systems, which resulted in persistent waterlogging in paddy fields even after Cyclone Michaung made landfall.

In a bold warning, Naidu compared the fate of the Jagan Mohan Reddy government to that of the recently defeated KCR government in neighbouring Telangana, predicting dire consequences in the upcoming days. “We have seen the Telangana poll result, and in the upcoming days, Andhra Pradesh will also face the consequences,” he asserted.

As part of his visit, Naidu plans to inspect the devastated crop fields in Parchur and Prattipadu constituencies on Saturday. Cyclone Michaung, which made landfall on the Andhra Pradesh coast earlier this week, brought intense rain and wind speeds of up to 100 mph, causing widespread devastation and affecting over two crore people. The cyclone has claimed over a dozen lives, with thousands of homes and vehicles submerged.

The TDP president’s fiery remarks amplify the challenges faced by the state government in the aftermath of the cyclone, turning the spotlight on the urgency for effective relief measures and agricultural rehabilitation. The political fallout of this crisis remains uncertain, but Naidu’s confrontational approach signals a brewing storm on the political horizon.
