Chandrababu Naidu’s past is now returning him favours and helping the people of Vizag, Srikakulam and Vizianagaram. Neighbour Orissa government has deployed over 300 personnel in AP to actively participate in the relief measures of Hudhud cyclone. Chief Minister of Orissa Naveen Patnaik personally called on over 300 personnel and told them to work rigorously for Andhra Pradesh. Naveen apparently asked them to work as though they’re working for their own state.
This has something to do with Naidu’s previous act when he was CM for undivided AP. Chandrababu has helped Orissa a lot when similar cyclone hit in 1999. When cyclone devastated Cuttak, Puri and other districts then, Naidu sent rescue and relief team including expert road-clearing unit, a group of electricians and a team of 50 doctors and 400 paramedics. By the time, Orissa governmet acted, Naidu has revived the normal situation.
Keeping this in mind, Naveen Patnaik has now returned favour. Offering help to one another in tough times is certainly a good thing and kudos to Naidu for initiating this.
