YSR Congress Party Honourary President Y S Vijayamma today alleged that Kiran Kumar Reddy Government had failed to tackle cyclone Nilam and the resultant flood.

Addressing farmers at Tirumalaya Palem in Khammam district after inspecting the flooded cotton and tobacco fields and chilli crops in and around the village, Ms Vijayamma asked the Government to pay proper compensation immediately for the affected farmers.

Vijayamma was on a one-day tour of the flood affected areas and inundated crops in Khammam district.

Reacting to the reports that 2,31,966 acres of cotton crop has been destroyed in the recent Nilam cyclone, She said "people can't live if there is no agriculture and if there are no farmers." "We can't survive without farmers," she said and asked the Government to announce a financial package immediately.

She assured the farmers that YSRCP would bring pressure on the Government to ensure proper compensation was paid to the farmers who have lost their crops.

Ms Vijayamma asked Chief Minister Kirankumar Reddy to react and announce compensation for the farmers immediately without waiting for Central teams to visit the state.
