'Let there be transparency'

'Let there be transparency'

Krishna had accompanied the PM on his aerial survey of flood-affected areas in Raichur. On his arrival in Bangalore, he addressed a press conference.

 “I suggest transparency and accountability in the spending and the works should be visible,” he said. He appealed to the state government to keep the gruel centres open for an extended period of time to help people.

He called for involvement of the people in the relief efforts as it was essential to ensure quality work.

He donated Rs 1 crore from his MPLAD  allocation for rebuilding houses in the flood affected districts.

He also asked the state government to relocate the houses of people in 1,500 villages, which are low lying and hence prone to floods.

In response to Venkaiah Naidu’s statement, that the help came too late and was too little, Krishna said that the Central Government has responded speedily assured that more help would be coming in the form of programmes for rehabilitation.
