Following a severe rainfall alert from the weather department due to a low-pressure formed over North-east and Northern central Arabia sea, the Telangana government has alerted the officials and upped the preventive measures. After the recent incessant rains that resulted in floods and killed over 50 people, the Telangana state government is ensuring the rescue and relief measures in place. It is planning to shift the people in low-lying areas to safe zones. As part of it, Telangana CMO has requested the AP state government for boats.
CM Jagan has acted quickly on Telangana CMO’s request. CM Jagan directed the Tourism department officials to send speed boats to Telangana at the earliest. 3 speed boats from AP State Disaster Management (APSDMA) and 5 speed boats from Tourism Department have been sent to Hyderabad. Apart from the speed boats, AP state government has also sent expert swimmers who are trained in disaster management and necessary life-jackets to Hyderabad. The speed boats are going to be used in Telangana for the rescue operations from tomorrow.
After differences broke out between CM KCR and AP CM YS Jagan during the Apex Council meeting over Krishna river water sharing, this move of helping Telangana in this crisis is expected to cool CM KCR to an extent.
