Janasena Party President Pawan Kalyan on Saturday inspected Nivar cyclone-affected areas in Nellore district.

"I came here to extend support to farmers. If the government does not respond to the immediate relief to every affected farmer, we have decided to launch a fasting protest," Kalyan said while addressing the people.

He slammed the state government and said that the roads between Guduru and Tippavarappadu are in bad shape.

“It is not that we are travelling on the road it was as if we are travelling in the boat. An ambulance vehicle is seen on the way. What happened if a person with a heart stroke or a pregnant woman is going for a delivery?”,he asked.

 “Roads will be laid two days before the rain comes and they will be washed away in two days. Where ever you see corruption is on the rise. They are earning money from the taxes we pay”, he said.

“Roads are seen only in front of the houses of the leaders, but they are not seen in villages. We won't keep quiet if you resort to attacks on Jana Sainiks while they are responding on people's issues," he added.

He further said that leaders will spend crores of rupees for elections, but they won't take out even single rupee from their pockets for the welfare of the people. 

Pawan Kalyan unveiled a flag post of Janasena party at Tippavarappadu village. 

Earlier, he addressed the people at Guduru Clock Tower Centre.

People in good numbers gathered in the main junction while holding banners stating that people of 30 villages including their village Guntapalli in Venkatagiri constituency are inflicted with diseases due to pollution caused by the dump yard managed by Coastal Waste Management.

Speaking on the occasion Pawan Kalyan said:

 "People of 30 villages are facing hardships due to poisonous substances. Water and soil are becoming poisonous and showing an adverse impact on the people's health causing deaths”.

“We will extend support to the victims by confining to Janasena Party's main principle - environment protection", he said.

On Saturday, Pawan Kalyan had urged the Jagan Mohan Reddy government in Andhra Pradesh to extend immediate help to farmers who lost crops of over 17.5 lakh acres due to Cyclone Nivar.

Kalyan demanded relief of Rs 35,000 per acre and immediate relief of Rs 10,000 in the next two days otherwise his party will stage a state-wide hunger strike on December 7.

The Nivar cyclone last week caused extensive damage to crops in over 6.59 lakh hectares in different districts of Andhra Pradesh

The most affected districts where crops were lost due to Cyclone Nivar are West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur, Prakasam, Nellore, Chittoor and Kadapa.
