PRP call for flood relief gets good response in Visakhapatnam

Visakhapatnam

The Praja Rajyam Party president, K Chiranjeevi's who is in Visakhapatnam to take part in PRP road show in collecting donations for the flood victims of the state received tremendous response in the city on Saturday. Thousands of people including women and children literally choked the route taken by him by standing all over the roads awaiting his arrival. It took over three hours to cover a distance of about four kilometers from Gurudwara junction to Jagadamba junction.

Speaking to media conference at the airport, he expressed gratitude to the people of the city for their warmth and affection for their tremendous response for his road show. He said that he was touched by the gesture of a coolie woman who took out Rs. 100 note from her sari and put it in our collection box. It is not the amount but her concern for fellow citizens and her attitude in wanting to help them in her own way that counts.

Chiranjeevi further said that the Praja Rajyam Party has already collected and sent bags of rice and other essential commodities towards flood relief in other districts. In response to a question, he said that the total amount collected on Saturday was not yet known but he expressed confidence that it would run in lakhs of rupees. He said that the PRP leaders will go personally and distribute the relief material in the flood affected areas as they would be doing justice to the donors who have reposed faith on the party.
