    The President of TPCC, A Revanth Reddy, criticized Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for not taking the warnings of heavy rains seriously. He accused CM KCR of prioritizing political defections over the safety of people’s lives. Reddy also condemned the CM for neglecting to review the flood situation and instead using his office for political purposes.

    Reddy stated that many lives were lost due to the negligence of the State government, while ruling party leaders enjoyed themselves in farmhouses. He highlighted the government’s recurring practice of witnessing floods every year and then forgetting about them. The State has already reported a loss of Rs 3,000 crore and an estimated 10 lakh acres of crops damaged across Telangana.

Additionally, he requested Rs 15,000 temporary compensation for those affected by the floods.
