Amravati, December 8: Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu visited the cyclone-affected areas of Amravati on Friday and inspected the situation. In an attack on the state government for not giving adequate assistance to farmers, Naidu said, "90 per cent of crops have submerged in flood water. The state government has failed to protect the crops and they did not even provide proper assistance to farmers."

Continuing his attack against the Jagan Mohan Reddy government, the former Chief Minister said, "Proper drainage systems were not laid. Even after the landfall of cyclone Michuangmichoung, water logging can be seen in paddy fields. The government has done nothing to tackle this problem." Cyclone Michaung: PM Narendra Modi Condoles Loss of Lives Due to Cyclonic Storm in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Puducherry.

The TDP president further warned that the Jagan Mohan Reddy government will face the same consequences as the KCR government in neighbouring Telangana where KCR lost the recent poll battle to Congress.

"We have seen the Telangana poll result and in the upcoming days, Andhra Pradesh will also face the consequences," Naidu said. On Saturday, Naidu will inspect the crop fields devastated by cyclone Michaung in Parchur and Prattipadu constituencies in Andhra Pradesh. Cyclone Michaung Relief: PM Narendra Modi Has Directed Release of Rs 450 Crore, Second Instalment to Tamil Nadu, Says Rajnath Singh.
