Hyderabad, July 18 (Hydnow): Former minister Marri Shashidhar Reddy today slammed Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for his comments that there was an international conspiracy behind the recent torrential rains in the State.
Speaking to media persons at Gandhi Bhavan here, Shashidhar reddy said the Chief Minister also said the cloud-burst occurred in Ladakh and Uttarakhand in the past and added that the cloud burst in Uttarakhand took place in the year 2009 while noting that the cloud burst will result in 100 mm of rainfall. He said the rainfall registered by the State was much greater than what the cloud burst would result. He asked the Chief Minister to provide any kind of information that he has about his cloud burst theory.
The former minister mocked that KCR, who claimed to have studied 80,000 books, was not aware of the concept of the rains. He alleged that the State government was not implementing disaster management when there is a natural disaster in the State. He said the State level disaster management meetings were not held even after eight years in the State.
He also alleged that KCR was playing diversion politics in the State. He warned the State government that the towns in the country would witness more floods in the days to come and asked the State government to follow disaster management rules to prevent the natural calamities. (Hydnow)
